Capt. Benjamin I.^e-h. <Mmmanded a small p in the Revo- 

lutionary War. an»l was oaptured by the British 
years in the old Mill Prison at Plymouth, England. 

orge Lambert Gould rec ei ved his early education in the public 
schools of Woburn and Chelsea, Mass., his father having moved from 
Woburn to Chelsea in 1863. At the end of his second year in the 
Chelsea High School, in L867, when he was fifteen yean old, he 
went to work for hie father, who was the proprietor of i paint and 
oil business in Boston. The building, at the comer of Water and 

Kilhv Streets, in which the business was carried on, was hurried in 
the great Boston fire in Noveml er L872. but new quarters were 
found on India Street and later (1877) on Union Street. Mr. Gould 
was made a member of his father's firm. Gould A Company, on 

I January L874: and on 31 December 1889 this firm was consolidated 
with the firm OI A. L. Cutter A: Company and the new company was 

Vol.. I. XXVI. 1 



4 George Lambert Gould [Jan. 

incorporated as Gould & Cutler, Corporation, the first incorporation 
among Boston paint firms. In December 1902 the corporation moved 
into a building on North Street, and in June 1911 took possession 
of its present quarters on Sudbury Street. At the time of his death 
Mr. Gould had been for many years president of this corporation, 
which carries on an extensive business. 

Mr. Gould was president also of the C. J. Prince Company, com- 
mission merchants, of 161 Milk Street, Boston, a director of the firm 
of Benjamin Moore & Company, manufacturers of paints and 
varnishes, of New York, an organizer and at one time president of 
the National Paint, Oil and Varnish Association, and one of the last 
of the original members of the Paint and Oil Club of New England, 
established in 1884, of which he was president in 1887 and 1888. 
In 1914 he delivered in Boston, before this last-named organization, 
an address entitled " Historical Sketch of the Paint, Oil, Varnish and 
Allied Trades of Boston since 1800, A.D.," which, embellished with 
many portraits of the leaders in this branch of business in Boston, 
was published, with additions and corrections, by vote of the Club, 
in a volume of atiout 150 pages. 

Mr. Gould resided in Chelsea until 1877, when he removed to 
Maiden, where he lived for many years. He took an active part in 
the social and civic life of that community, served as a member of 
the committee appointed by the town of Maiden to draft a city 
charter, and was later a member of the water commission and of the 
sinking-fund commission of the new city. He was one of the founders 
of the Maiden Cooperative Bank, of which he became a director, 
vice president, and president. He was also at one time a director of 
the Associated Charities in Maiden, and at the time of his death was 
a director and vice president of the Maiden Historical Society and a 
member of the Kernwood Club. For many years he had been a lead- 
ing member of the First Church (Congregational) in Maiden. 

In the later years of his life he was a legal resident of Topsfield, 
a town to which he was strongly attached as the birthplace of his 
father and the home of his ancestors for many generations. On the 
family estate once owned by Zaccheus Gould he built in 1895 a 
beautiful summer residence which he called "Pinelands, " but he 
continued to spend part of the winter season in his Maiden home. 
He served on the committee to make arrangements for the celebra- 
tion of the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the incorporation 
of the town of Topsfield (1900), was a member of the Topsfield 
Historical Society, and took an active interest in everything per- 
taining to the welfare of the town. 

For many years Mr. Gould had been greatly interested in genealogi- 
cal and historical subjects. On 1 January 1896 he was elected a 
resident member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, 
became a life member in the following year, and joined the new class 
of Pilgrim Tercentenary members in 1920. On 2 May 1917 he was 
appointed by the Council of the Society a member of the Committee 
on Finance, to fill the vacancy in that committee caused by the death 
of Vice President Charles Sidney Ensign, and at the annual meeting 
of the Society on 6 February 1918 he was elected Treasurer, thereby

Additions and Corrections 
Vol. 75 

Page 143, line 12, for the first read one of the first. 

Page 144, lines 27-39 (1, iv). Mr. Albert C. Bates, Librarian of the Connecticut 
Historical Society, Hartford, Conn., writes that there is no reason known to 
him for thinking that Anne (Withington) Bates (1, iv) ever lived at Hunting- 
ton, Long Island, where, according to this article, she died in 1700. Mr. 
Bates states that she died before 16 Feb. 1691/2, when the children of "James 
and hanah bate late of haddam deseased" signed an agreement dividing, 
apparently, "the whole estat of the said James and Anna bate." (Haddam 
Land Records, vol. 1, p. 22.) The wording of this agreement, continues Mr. 
Bates, indicates that Anne survived her husband and had come into possession 
of his property. Mr. Bates adds, in regard to the children of Anne (With- 
ington) Bates, that Samuel was baptized 19, 4 mo. 1648, i. e., 19 June 1648, 
that John was born at Haddam, Conn., in Oct. 1666, that Hannah was born 
at Haddam 7 Sept. 1668, that Alice, who, according to this article, was born 
about 1657, is mentioned in 1655 in the will of her grandfather Bate, that the 
first Mary was baptized in Jan. 1654/5 and that it has been supposed that she 
was the Mary whom Samuel Hough, born in 1653, married as his second wife, 
and that James, born in 1662, married Mary Lord. Mr. Bates asks whether 
the Mary Bate who was baptized 11 Mar. 1666 (the second Mary) was a child 
of James and Anne (Withington). If she was their child, she was born after 
Margaret, who was baptized in June 1664 or was born (according to the Dor- 
chester town records) in July 1664, and before John, who was born in Oct. 
1666, and such a birth appears unlikely. In reference to these statements of 
Mr. Bates the author of this genealogy wishes to say that the known records 
of the family of James Bates, husband of Anne Withington, are very meagre, 
and that the authorities consulted are not always in agreement. The late 
Lothrop Withington (153, ii) wrote that Anne (Withington) Bate died at 
Huntington in 1700. The date of baptism (11 Mar. 1666) of the second Mary, 
but not the place, is given by one of the authorities consulted. The Haddam 
(Conn.) records and the will referred to by Mr. Bates were not accessible to 
the author of this article.

NEW ENGLANDERS IN THE FLORIDA CENSUS 

OF 1850 

Contributed by Frank Mortimer Hawes, A.M., of Somerville, Mass. 

The lists printed below contain the names of six hundred and 
twenty natives of New England who, according to the Census of 
1850, were then residing in Florida. The number following the name 
gives the age. Numbers in parentheses give the volume and page of 
the records where the name is found, and by referring to the accom- 
panying list of localities mentioned in each volume the place of 
residence may be easily determined. When husband, wife, or children 
are mentioned without names, the inference is that they were born 
outside of New England. The original record, of course, gives their 
names, ages, and places of birth. When the name of a State (abbre- 
viated) or country is given in parentheses, it indicates the native 
State or country of the person whose name immediately precedes the 
parentheses. 

The compiler of these pages consulted the original census returns 
at Washington, D. C, in the spring of 1920, before they had been 
damaged by fire. The neglect to house our national records in a 
place of absolute safety is almost criminal.

GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH IN ENGLAND 

Communicated by the Committee on English Research 
[Continued from vol. 75, page 301] 

Jenkin 
Contributed by Eben Putnam of Wellesley Farms, Mass. 

The records published in this contribution show the English 
ancestry and connections of Martha Jenkin, wife of William Eaton, 
who came to New England in 1637 and, after living for several years 
at Watertown, Mass., removed to Reading, Mass., where he died in 
1673. 

There were several Jenkin or Jenken families in co. Kent, England, 
and the probate and parish records of the sixteenth and seventeenth 
centuries referring to persons of this name in that county are numer- 
ous. The records selected for publication here relate chiefly to Henry 
Jenkin of Coldred, co. Kent, the grandfather of Martha (Jenkin) 
Eaton, and his descendants, although a few early wills and sundry 
parish records of persons whose relationship to the Henry Jenkin 
family has not yet been proved are given, in the hope that they may 
be helpful to subsequent investigators who may attempt to carry the 
ancestral line farther back than has been done in this article. Abstracts 
of many wills of the Jenkin families of Hawkhurst and Folkestone,

of Martha (Jenkin) Eaton, they arc not printed here. A brief

latter pari of the seventeenth century, follows the record-.

bondsman, 6 December. (3:257.) 

A pedigree of fche Jenkin family of Coldred, co. Kent, brand 
of which are found, in the seventeenth century, in several pari 
of the [rfe of Thanet, is printed in Berry's " Pedigrees of the Families 
in the ( Jounty of Kent," published in London in 1830, p n I 185, 

immediately following a pedigree of the Jenkirj bone, 

which is given on pages 482 483 of bh< one work. To Jenkin 

of Folkestone, the mosl prominent family of the name in Kent, 

Berry a the following arms: Argent, a lion rampant regardant 

sable; and the same coat of arms is given in the pedigree of this 
family in The Visitation of Kent , 1619.* To the branch of the ( Joldred 
family I at Minster in Thanet, which was descended from 

Thomas Jenkin (vide infra, page 71. 6, i), Berry gives the following 

t: A lion sejant argent, resting his dexter paw on a tortea 
Prom time to time intermarriages took place between members of 
the Folkestone and Coldred families, and it is probable thai the two 
families were descended from a common ancestor, although investi- 
gations made by the contributor of this article and by the Chairman 

of the Committee on English Re -arch in the course of his recent 

stay in England were not carried far enough to prove the con 
ness of this conjecture. From the records given above the follow 
genealogy of the Coldred family has been compiled, establishing the 
place of Martha (Jenkin) Eaton among the descendants of Henry 
Jenkin of Coldred and making sundry corrections and a number of 
additions to Berry's pedigree. A few statements are given on Berry's 
authority, and a few others are supported by references to other 

English and American records. 

1. Jenkin, of Lvmmaf . oo, K mt, was prob- 
ably descended from Jenkin, perhaps of Hythe, co. Kent. 

A common origin may reasonably be claimed for the Jenkin families 
of Coldred, Folkestone, Lyminge, and Lympne in thai county.

testator of 1574/5, born, probably at Lyminge, co. Kent, about 
1525, died between 26 Jan. 1574 5 and 9 July 1575. He married 

Margaret (or Margery) , the testatrix of 1607, whose 

will was proved 14 Mar. 1009 10.

that he was then aged about 62, and in 1670 Jonas Baton gave his

were closely related, although no mention of relationship between 
them has yet been found. J The will of William Eaton, dated 
26 Sept. 1072 and proved 11 June 1073, mentions wife Martha,

fThis list is printed in Reoistfr, vol. 75, pp. 221-223. 

Jit is not improbable that John Eaton, who was living at Watertown when William Eaton 
came there to settle and who afterwards removed to Dedham, and Jonas Eaton were brothers 
of William. John WM born probably about 1600, William about 1607, and Jonas about 1618. 
No proof of this relationship has as yet been discovered, and the parentage and family connections 
of William Eaton remain unknown.

Hale-Dowsett 
Contributed by Walter Goodwin Davis, B.A., LL.B., of Portland, Me. 

That the maiden name of Thomasine, wife of Thomas 1 Hale of 
Newbury, Mass., was Dowsett has been proved by Mr. William 
Prescott Greenlaw in the Register, vol. 64, page 186, where the 
record of the marriage, 11 December 1632, of Thomas Hall of Watton 
apud Stone, co. Hertford, glover, and Thomazin Dowsett, maiden, 
is given from the printed " Registers of St. Helen's, Bishopsgate, 
London." In the " Calendar of Marriage Licences issued by the 
Faculty Office, " 1632-1714, the licence of Thomas Hale and Thom- 
asine Dowsett is found to have been issued 10 December 1632 (The 
Index Library, vol. 33, page 3). The following abstracts of probate 
records, taken from the Withington Papers, now in the possession of 
the Essex Institute, Salem, Mass., show that Thomasine Dowsett 
was a daughter of Gabriel Doucet of Harlow, co. Essex, and give 
information about his family. 

The Will of Gabriel Doucet of Harlow, co. Essex, miller, dated 14 Decem- 
ber . To my son Thomas my copyhold tenement near Harlow Market, 

in the tenure of George Chapman. To my daughter Tomazen Douset £90. 
To my son Thomas three roods of freehold land in Harlow March, on con- 
dition that he pay to my daughter Tomazen £10 more. To my grandson 
Thomas Freeman 10s. at the age of five years. To my daughter Joan 5s.

To my wife Mercy and my son Thomas, jointly, the care of the mill and all 
other chattels, and they are to be executors. Witnesses: Ed. Spranger, 
John Jocelyn. Proved — January 1627 [1627/8]. (Archdeaconry of Middle- 
sex for Essex and Herts [Somerset House], Register Browne, fo. 176.) 

Administration on the estate of Mercie Dowsett of Watton-at-Stone 
[co. Herts], widow, was granted to her daughter Thomasine, wife of Thomas 
Hale, and bond was filed 25 June 1635. (Archdeaconry of Huntingdon for 
Herts [Somerset House], Act Book 5, fo. 8.) 

The Dowsett family was well established in western Essex and 
eastern Herts in the seventeenth century. Unfortunately the parish 
registers of Harlow were stolen from the church in 1814, and that 
source of further information in regard to the ancestry of Thomasine 
(Dowsett) Hale is therefore cut off.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORIC 
GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY 

By Henry Edwards Scott, A.B., Recording Secretary 

Boston, Massachusetts, 2 November 1921. A stated meeting of the Society was 
held in Wilder Hall, 9 Ashburton Place, at 2.30 P.M., Albert Henry Lamson, 
Vice President for New Hampshire, presiding, and a quorum being present. 

The minutes of the October meeting were approved, and the reports of the 
Corresponding Secretary, Librarian, Historian, and Council were accepted, the 
Council reporting that since the October meeting members of the Society had 
been elected as follows: 

Resident Members 

Mrs. Russell Hastings of New York City 

Rev. George Nathan Newman of Buffalo, N. Y. 

Rev. William Dawson Bridge, D.D., of Orange, N. J. 

William S. Kemp of Brookline, Mass. 

Mrs. Emma Endicott Marean of Cambridge, Mass. 

Maj. William Howe Greene of St. John's, Newfoundland 

George C. Jackson of Anaconda, Mont. 

Mrs. Edith L. Watts of Cambridge, Mass. 

On motion it was 

Voted, That the New England Historic Genealogical Society hereby enters in its records its 
appreciation of the great loss that it has sustained in the death, on 30 October 1921, of George 
Lambert Gould, Treasurer of the Society and a member ex officio of the Council. Elected a resident 
member of the Society in 1896, he became a life member in 1897 and a Pilgrim Tercentenary mem- 
ber in 1920. Appointed a member of the Committee on Finance in 1917, he was elected Treasurer 
at the annual meeting of the Society in February 1918, and held this office, by virtue of successive 
reflections, from that time until his death. He discharged the onerous duties of this responsible 
and important position with strict fidelity and unswerving devotion to what he believed to be the 
highest interests of the Society. Heartily in sympathy with its lofty aims, he not only gave to it 
in the conduct of his office the benefit of experience gained in a long and successful business career 
but also contributed liberally to its endowment fund, and took an active interest as a member in 
the work of the special committee to which the task of increasing the financial resources of the 
Society and adding to its membership was entrusted. The Society will cherish the memory of his 
sound judgment, kindly spirit, upright character, and ungrudging service, and it extends to his 
sons and daughters this expression of sincere sympathy in their bereavement. 

The Recording Secretary then announced that Clement Stevens Houghton, in 
a letter dated 19 October 1921, had tendered his resignation as a member of the 



1922] Proceedings of the N. E. Hist. Gen. Society 77 

Council of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and, oj\ motion, it 
was 

Voted, That the resignation of Clement Stevens Houghton as a member of the Council of the 
New England Historic Genealogical Society be and hereby is accepted. 

On motion it was 

Voted, That at the stated meeting of this Society in December next an election be held, in 
accordance with the By-Laws, to fill any vacancies that may then exist in the list < f executive 
officers and councillors.

Historical Intelligence 

Heraldry. — The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society strongly recommends that all coats of arms which can be 

proved to be authentic be offered for record 
with this Society. The arrangements for the 
making ' and preservation of such records are 
complete, and the volume of recorded arms has 
been begun by the entry therein of a number of 
well-authenticated coats. Printed forms and 
directions for the making of applications may 
be obtained from the Committee, and all com- 
munications on this subject should be addressed 
to the Committee on Heraldry, New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston. 

Without taking any position with reference to 
the propriety of assuming arms, the Committee 
will be glad to examine arms or heraldic devices 
which any person or organization desires to as- 
sume, and give advice as to whether the same are heraldically correct or whether 
they violate a right of exclusive use heretofore acquired by others. 




A New Aid in English Research. — To Mr. Gerald Fothergill of London the 
Register is indebted for information about a series of books recently discovered 
in the old vaults at Somerset House which contain records of the taxes on appren- 
tices' indentures and are helpful to those searching for ancestors born in England 
between the years 1690 and 1740. 

These books give the residence and trade of the father of the apprentice, the 
name, trade, and residence of the master, and the date of the indenture. Hitherto 
the difficulty of the genealogist has been to know which one of the many thousands 
of parish registers in England should be searched in order to find the family in 
which he is interested. Now these apprentice books make it possible to find in 
one set of records clues as to the parentage and home of many of the inhabitants 
of England. 

The entries are extremely numerous, but an alphabetical digest is being made, 
and the records for seven j^ears, containing the names of about 40,000 apprentices, 
have been made accessible in this way. 



Portraits of the Founders. — Mr. Charles Knowles Bolton, librarian of the 
Boston Athenaeum and a member of the New England Historic Genealogical 
Society, is at work on a third volume of his "Portraits of the Founders." He 
would like to hear of portraits of persons born abroad who came to the American 
Colonies before the year 1701. 

Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised 
to furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated,

THE 
NEW ENGLAND 

HISTORICAL AND GENEALOGICAL 

REGISTER 



APRIL, 1922 



WILLIAM EBEN STONE, PH.B. 
By J. Gardner Bartlett of Boston, Mass. 

William Eben Stone, of Cambridge, Mass., elected to resident 
membership in the New England Historic Genealogical Society 
5 May 1880, died at his home in Cambridge 23 February 1921. 

He was born at Walpole, Mass., 27 November 1845, the youngest 
son of Dr. Ebenezer 7 and Elizabeth Holbrook (Ilawes) Stone, the 
father being a graduate of Brown University and the Harvard 
Medical School and for over forty years a successful physician in 
Walpole and the surrounding towns. The progenitor of the family 
in America was Dea. Gregory 1 Stone of Cambridge 4 , Mass., in 1637, 
from whom Mr. Stone was descended through John 2 of Sudbury, 
Mass., Nathaniel 3 and Ebenezer 4 of Framingham, Mass., Silas 5 of 
Natick, Mass., and Dublin, N. H., who died oear {Saratoga while 
serving in the American Army in the Revolution, Silas 6 of Sherborn. 
Mass., who also was a soldier in the American Army in the Revolution 
and was severely wounded at the Battle of White Plains, N. Y., 
and Dr. Ebenezer 7 Stone of Walpole, Mass., his father. In all of 
his ancestral lines Mr. Stone traced his descent from the early 
Puritan founders of New England, including among his ancestors 
the Waites, Hills, Pratts, Russells, Coolidges, Twitchells, Bullards, 
Barbours, Haweses, and many other well-known families of Middlesex 
and Norfolk Counties, Mass. 

Mr. Stone was graduated at Brown L T niversity in 1866 with the 
degree of Bachelor of Philosoplry, and then studied mining engineering 
for a year as a member of the first class ever graduated at the Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology. In 1867 he went to Marquette. 
Mich., where he remained seven years as a chemist and engineer in 
the employ of various iron mining companies. In 1874 he secured 
an interest in the Champion Iron Company of Michigan, soon after- 
wards became treasurer and general manager of this company, with 
offices in Boston, and continued in these positions for twenty-five 
years. The mines of this iron company were rich in a scarce high- 
grade ore which was essential in the manufacture of steel by the 
earlier methods of the open-hearth process, so that the operations of 
the company, under the efficient, skillful direction of Mr. Stone, 
became extremely profitable. During all these years Mr. Stone's 

VOL. LXXVI. 6 



84 William Eben Stone [April 

home was in Cambridge and his office in Boston; but four times 
each year he spent a few weeks at the mines in Michigan, supervising 
their management. About 1901 the company was very advan- 
tageously sold to Pennsylvania steel interests merged in the United 
States Steel Corporation, and Mr. Stone retired from active business 
with an ample fortune. 

From his early years Mr. Stone was enthusiastically interested 
in the genealogy of the Stone family and the history of his ancestors, 
and by his persistent efforts from 1880 to 1896, through researches 
by Col. Joseph Lemuel Chester, Henry FitzGilbert Waters, and 
himself, he succeeded in locating Gregory Stone at Great Bromley, 
co. Essex, England, and in tracing back his ancestry there for several 
generations. These results were reported by Mr. Stone at the first 
meeting of the Stone Family Association, held in Boston 26 January 
1897. Of this organization Mr. Stone was the predominant but 
unostentatious leader during the rest of his life, serving as its vice 
president, 1897-1904, its president, 1904-1909, and a member of 
its executive committee, 1909-1921. The activities of this association 
culminated in the appearance in 1918 of the ''Gregory Stone Gene- 
alogy," an important work of nine hundred pages, the compilation 
and publication of which were almost wholly due to the enthusiastic 
efforts and extreme liberality of Mr. Stone. 

In 1907 Mr. Stone was appointed a member of the Committee on 
English Research of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, 
and he served on this committee the remaining fourteen years of his 
life. During all this time he was not only a generous annual con- 
tributor to the funds raised by the committee for carrying on gene- 
alogical research in England, but was also always warmly appreciative 
of the results secured and published in the Register. After holding 
membership in the Society for forty years, he was elected, at the 
annual meeting in February 1920, a councillor for a three-year 
term, only one year of which he had served at the time of his decease. 
During his later life he was a frequent visitor to the library of the 
Society and to the Boston Athenaeum, for the purpose of pursuing 
his favorite genealogical researches. 

In 1874 Mr. Stone established his home in Cambridge, where he 
resided the rest of his life, and in later years he also had a summer 
house on Fisher's Island, in Long Island Sound. He travelled exten- 
sively in North and South America, and several times made extended 
trips to Europe, where the family lived at one time for three years 
while his children were being educated there. 

He was a member of the Somerset Club of Boston, the Oakley 
Country Club, the New England Kennel Club, and the Cambridge 
Boat Club. He also held membership in the Cambridge Historical 
Society, the Boston Athenaeum, the Bostonian Society, the Biblio- 
phile Society of Boston, the Society of Colonial Wars in the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts, and the Societ}^ of Sons of the Revolution. 

The finest qualities of our ancient New England stock came to their 
fairest fruition in the character and personality of Mr. Stone. His 
innate refinement, cultured mind, and delicate modest}' were always 
apparent; his courteous, genial, engaging manner and frank, sincere 



1922J Descendants of Joseph Soule 85 

cordiality ever gladdened the circles in which he moved; his gentle, 
serene disposition, sympathetic kindness, warmth of heart, and 
liberal generosity endeared him to all his relatives and friends; and 
his unswerving integrity, sound judgment, and intellectual abilities 
secured for him the respect and esteem of the community. Favored 
with a tall figure, fine physique, and handsome countenance, he had 
a distinguished bearing and appearance. Remarkably fine health 
and unimpaired keenness of mind enabled him to enjoy life with

102 Records of the First Church of Wells, Me. [April 

born 10 Apr. 1714. 6. Mary, born 11 Oct. 1720; married (intention recorded 
at Dartmouth, 18 Dec. 1749) Joseph Davis of Freetown. 

Timothy 4 Soule, son of Nathan 3 and Mercy or Mary (GifTord), born 
10 Apr. 1714, died before 7 Jan. 1772. when his mother, in her will, mentions 

him as deceased. He married at Dartmouth, 6 1736 7, Elizabeth Allen, 

perhaps daughter of Joseph and Rachel, and, if so, born at Dartmouth id 
the "first week of" Mar. 1710. He moved to what is now Dover, Dutchess 
Co., N. Y., where he was a justice of the peace, as is proved by records signed 
by him. The only child of Timothy Soule of whom record has been found 
is Joseph, 6 mentioned 7 Jan. 1772 in the will of hifl grandmother, Mary Soule. 
This Joseph is supposed to be identical with the Joseph Soule of Fairfield, 
Vt., with whom the foreL r <>iiiL r genealogy begins, and who, according to family 
tradition and Ilcnienway rmont Historical Gazetteer/ 1 vol. 2, p. 192, 

came to Fairfield from Dover, X. Y. It should not be overlooked that the 
eldest son of Joseph Soule of Fairfield was named Timothy.

♦The names underlined in the manuscript are printed here in italics; but, beginning with the 
entry dated June 19, 1768, the underlining of the names of the parents of male infants was dis- 
continued. For the general arrangement of the manuscript records see Rkgister, vol. 75, p. 104, 
footnote, and p. 310, footnote. In the present instalment, for greater convenience in printing, the 
arrangement of the names in columns has not been reproduced, and the words "Son of" and "&" 
(or "and"), which in the manuscript are used, when they are used at all, only once on each page, 
between the columns, have been inserted to connect the names in each printed entry. The con- 
secutive numbers given on some pages of the manuscript to the children baptized have been 
omitted. In dates the customary abbreviations have been used for the names of the months, the 
combinations "st," "th," etc., following the figures indicating the days of the month, have been 
omitted, and the year has been placed on the same line with the month and day. The marks of 
punctuation have been inserted by the Editor.

126 Genealogical Research in England [April 

John Wedon of Chesham, co. Bucks, yeoman. (Early Chancery Proceedings, 
Bundle 179, no. 13.) [No answer.] 

The Weeden or Weedon family in Buckinghamshire undoubtedly 
derived its name from the hamlet of Weeden in the parish of Hard- 
wick, about fifteen miles northwest of Chesham. The family is found 
at Chesham as early as 1333, when King Edward III accepted fealty 
of Thomas de Wedon, son and heir of Thomas de Wedon, for lands 
and tenements in Chesham. In 19 Edward III [1345-6] Ralph 
de Wedon recovered seisin of the manor of Chesham from John 
Cifrewast and others. (Cf. Lipscomb's History of Buckingham, 
page 263.) From that time until 1538, when the parish registers of 
Chesham begin, there were many Weedons in this parish, but the 
lack of wills makes it impossible to determine their relationship to 
one another. From the records given in the preceding pages, how- 
ever, and from New England sources the following pedigree has 
been prepared. 

1. Weeden, perhaps the Robert Wedcn of the Chancery 

suit given above or a brother of this Robert, was probably father of 

the four men whose names are given below, who were probably 

brothers, as the recurrence of the names James, Richard, Christopher, 

Elizabeth, and Christian in their families seems to indicate: 

i. Richard, of Chesham, the testator of 1548/9, b. probably about 

1505; d. before 27 Jan. 1558/9; m. Acnes , who survived 

him and proved his will 27 .Ian. 1558/9. Children, living unm. 
6 Jan. 1548 9:1. Elizabeth. 2. Christian. 

2. ii. James, of Botley in the parish of Chesham, b. probably at Chesham 

about 1510. 

3. iii. Thomas, of Pednoi ill the parish of Chesham, 1>. probably about 1512. 
iv. Robert, b. probably about 1515; bur. at ( hesham 20 Feb. 1573/4; 

m. (1) at Chesham, 2 Nov. 1539, Alice Weedon, who was bur. at 

Chesham 17 Dec. 1539, dau. of Roger; m. (2) Elizabeth , 

who was bur. at Chesham 3 June 1572. Children by second wife, 
bapt. at Chesham: 1. Stephen, bapt. 19 July 1542. 2. Christum, 
bapt. 12 Mar. 1548/9. 3. Elizabeth, bapt. 7 Nov. 1551. 

2. James Weeden ( ), of Botley in the parish of Chesham, co. 

Bucks, tilemaker, the testator of 1571/2, born probably at 
Chesham about 1510, was buried there 12 Feb. 1571/2. He 

married first, probably about 1535, Elizabeth , who 

was buried at Chesham 27 July 1560; secondly, at Chesham. 

12 Oct. 1564, Isabel Winch; and thirdly Elizabeth , 

who was living 8 Feb. 1571/2. 

The hamlet of Botley, where he lived, begins at the verge of 
the town of Chesham and straggles along the highroad to 
Hemel Hempsted for about two miles. 

Children by first wife: 

i. John, of Botley, tilemaker, the testator of 1589, b. probably about 

1536; bur. at Chesham 14 Oct. 1589; m. about 1561 Joan , 

who was bur. at Chesham 9 July 1598. Children: 1. John, bapt. 
at Chesham 12 Sept. 1562. 2. Emme, bapt. at Chesham 30 Sept. 
1564. 3. James, b. probably about 1566; d. young. 4. Joyce, bapt. 
at Chesham 18 Aug. 1568; in. there, 7 Jan. 1593/4, Thomas Hunte. 
5. Eleanor, bapt. at Chesham 7 Mar. 1573/4; m. at Tame, 27 Jan.

130 Records of St. James's Church, Derby, Conn. [April 



RECORDS OF ST. JAMES'S CHURCH, DERBY, CONN., 

1740-1796 

Communicated by Donald Lines Jacobus, M.A., of Mount Carmel, Conn. 

The Church of England in Derby, Conn., was organized in 1737, 
but the church edifice was not completed until about 1746. It was 
known as Christ's Church until 1799, when the second edifice was 
consecrated with the name of St. James's Church.* 

Three missionaries of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel 
in Foreign Parts rapidly followed one another as rectors of Derby 
parish. The fourth, Richard Mansfield, served for seventy-one 
years and eight months. He was born at New Haven, Conn., on 
1 Oct. 1723, the eighth and youngest child of Dea. Jonathan and 
Sarah (Ailing) Mansfield. After being graduated at Yale College 
in 1741, he went over to the Church of England, and was ordained 
a priest by the Archbishop of Canterbury, 7 Aug. 1748. He married 
at Derby, 10 Oct. 1751, Anna Hull, daughter of Joseph and Sarah, 
by whom he had thirteen children. She died 20 Aug. 1776, aged 40. 
Mr. Mansfield received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from Yale 
College in 1792, the first Episcopalian to receive that honor. He 
died 12 Apr. 1820, aged 96. t 

Until 1755 Mr. Mansfield labored as a missionary in several towns 
in Connecticut, some of which were at a considerable distance from 
Derby. His record of baptisms in these towns, from 1748 to 1754, 
is of great value to the historian as well as to the genealogist, and a 
copy is given below. After 1755 his parish included only Derby and 
Oxford. The register of baptisms of this parish contains a few entries 
in 1740 and 1742, but the continuous record does not begin until 
1748, when Mr. Mansfield became rector. No record of marriages 
or of burials is extant for the period prior to 1800. 

The vital statistics of the town of Derby are printed in Orcutt's 
history of that town, pages 693 to 784. The original records are 
far from complete, and many entries are omitted in Orcutt's copy. 
The earlier portion of the baptismal register of the First Congrega- 
tional Society of Derby is printed in volume 1 of the Derby Town 
Records. The records of St. James's Church have heretofore never 
appeared in print. They are indispensable in any study of the Derby 
families, the ecclesiastical census taken by Rev. Elizur Goodrich 
in 1774 showing that nearly forty per cent of the inhabitants of 
Derby were at that time members of the Anglican Church. % 

The following copy of the register of baptisms was begun by 
Ethel Lord Scofield, of West Haven, Conn., and her work was verified 
and the copy was continued by Donald Lines Jacobus and Mrs. 
Ida W. L. Jacobus, the latter of whom has prepared it for publication. 
Rev. Mr. Mansfield was frequently careless and omitted not only 
the names of children but occasionally the names of parents. The

PROCEEDINGS OF THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORIC 
GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY 

By Henry Edwards Scott, A.B., Recording Secretary 

Boston, Massachusetts, 1 February 1922. The annual meeting of the Society 
was held this day, for a report of which see the Supplement to the present num- 
ber of the Register. 

1 March. A stated meeting of the Society was held in Wilder Hall, 9 Ash- 
burton Place, at 2.30 P.M., Alfred Johnson, Vice President for Maine, presiding. 

The minutes of the annual meeting were read and approved. 

On motion of John Albree it was 

Voted, That the reports of the Corresponding Secretary, Librarian, Historian, and Council be 
read by title only. 

This was done, and the above-mentioned reports were accepted and ordered 
on file, the report of the Council showing that since the annual meeting members 
of the Society had been elected as follows: 

Life Member 
George Wood of Philadelphia, Pa. 

Resident Members 

Mrs. Charles C. Read of Arlington, Mass. 
Belle Gilman Brown of Boston, Mass. 
Mrs. Elno A. Carter of Everett, Mass. 
Allen Potter Crolius of Philadelphia, Pa. 
John Ailes Taft of Evanston, 111. 

The Chair then presented, as the speaker of the afternoon, Norman Morrison 
Isham, A.M., of Providence, R. I., whose subject, Colonial Architecture in Rhode 
Island, was treated in a comprehensive and carefully planned address, the tech- 
nical details of which were made clear and interesting to the audience by 
numerous lantern slides showing diagrams and views of old Rhode Island 
houses. 

At the conclusion of the address Albert Henry Lamson, Vice President for 
New Hampshire, took the chair, which Vice President Johnson had vacated, and, 
on motion of Hosea Starr Ballou, it was 

Voted, That the thanks of the Society be extended to Mr. Isham for his interesting |and instruc- 
tive paper. 

No further business being presented, the Chair, at 4.20 P.M., declared the 
meeting dissolved, and the members of the Society, with their guests, were 
invited to remain for the usual social hour in the adjoining tea room. 



NOTES 

It having come to the attention of this Society that certain geneal- 
ogists and publishers have used the name of the Society in con- 
nection with their own enterprises, the Society again desires to 
state that it has NO genealogical representatives in this country 
or in England, nor is it in any way connected with any publications 
other than those that it issues over its own name at 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston. 



1922] Notes 155 

Capt. Nathan Peirce's Company at the Siege op Quebec, 1776. — It is 
somewhat surprising that in the histories dealing with Berkshire County, Mass., 
no mention is made of Capt. Nathan Peirce's company of Green Mountain Boys. 
This Captain Peirce was my great-great-grandfather, and the tradition of our 
ancestor and of his part in the notable but unfortunate siege of Quebec has 
always been a lively one in our branch of the Peirce or Pierce family. 

Capt. Nathan Peirce was born at Rehoboth, Bristol Co., Mass., 22 Jan. 1744/5. 
He was one of the fifteen children of Elder Nathan Peirce, for thirty years min- 
ister of the well-known Hornbine Baptist Church, and a descendant of Capt. 
Michael Pierce, the famous Indian fighter, whose monument, on the Blackstone 
River, marks the spot where he was killed in King Philip's War. Capt. Nathan 
Peirce married Sarah Davis, and removed from Rehoboth to the Berkshire Hills 
before the Revolution. His farm was in the town of Lanesborough (which then 
included the present town of Cheshire) and near the present village of Cheshire. 

His company was recruited in answer to Arnold's repeated and insistent calls 
for reinforcements. Things were going slowly and badly at Quebec because of the 
smallness of the Colonial forces there. Only a part of the army that Arnold had 
taken with him up through the Maine wilderness had reached Quebec. The 
Congress at Philadelphia had little faith in the enterprise and neglected it, 
notwithstanding Washington's appeals. It was esteemed an affair for which the 
northern Colonial frontier should be responsible. Western Massachusetts had 
contributed a company or two earlier in the winter. This Peirce company seems 
to have been made up largely of men from the immediate vicinity of Cheshire; 
the names are those of Lanesborough families. It would appear from the paucity 
of names that the lists here given are incomplete. The documents which have 
been transcribed and which tell pretty much their own story were preserved by 
Captain Peirce's son Nathan, and are now in possession of Miss Clara Pierce of 
Manchester, N. Y.

In Camp before Quebec April 7th day 1776 

To James Barker Esq. and to my beloved friends and neighbors one and all. 
I would inform you the condition I found this Camp in as letters could not pass 
without examination therefore I could not inform you before. I arrived at camp 
ye 28 day of february when I was almost astonish at the deploreble condition 
the army was in for they had neither fort battery nor brest work at all nor any 
cannon or artillery but what was covered in snow Nor do I think they could 
muster 300 men to battle on any action and the enemy not less than 1900 strong 
But thanks be to god the army looks in a much more prosperous situation at 
this day 

ye 28 day of february when we came first to camp the small pox in almost 
every house such cold weather as I never saw before and in a few days my men 
began to be sick with the small pox and finally the} 7 have all had it except Anthony 
Sprague and John Green and they were sick in another hospital three men I lost

[On the reverse of the sheet] 

To James Barker Esq Dear Sir 

I received your favor of the 3 of March which was great satisfaction to me to 
hear from you and give you many thanks for your favor I perceive at that time 
you had not received any money from me which I hope is not the case now for I 
see major SafTord in camp he show me a Receipt he took of doctor Jay of Ben- 
nington for sixty dollars to carry to your self the over plus money I meant for 
my wife whether I wrote in particular before my memory doth not serve 

these from yours to serve 

Nathan Peirce 

Our family papers record" the death of Captain Peirce, of smallpox, on the 
Island of Three Sisters, near Quebec, 19 May 1776. How this information 
reached his family and friends we do not know. The published and manuscript 
Revolutionary records of Massachusetts, Vermont, and New York are silent 
as to Capt. Peirce's company, but it is well known that many of the troops 
engaged in the earlier campaigns of the War are thus unrecorded. 

After the close of the War Capt. Peirce's family removed to western New 
York, where his only son, Nathan, was one of the pioneer settlers cf Ontario 
County. Of the two daughters, Sarah married John McClouth, and Lydia 
married Benjamin Wheeler. 

Capt. Nathan invariably spelled his name "Peirce," although the variations 
" Pierce" and "Perse" were used by other members of his family. In the docu- 
ments copied above it has been impossible to determine when the form "ye" 
is employed, and when the form "the."

Newell-Strong. — In an old volume which has come to the Watkinson Library, 
entitled "Meditations and Contemplations," by James Hervey, first Worcester 
edition by Isaiah Thomas, 1789, I find the following writings: 

"Miss Chloe Strongs Book given her By her aunt Rhoda Newell of Lanes- 
borough while there on a visit in June 1827. 

"Cap* Ebenezer Newell died in 1806 adge [sic] years 

"Mrs. Rhoda Newell died in 1829 January aged 84 y e Relict of the late 

Cap 1 Eben 1 ' Newell, and youngest daughter of the late Mr. Nathaniel Strong of 
Northampton, Mass." 

Elsewhere in the book appear autographs of Ebenezer Newell and Mrs. Rhoda 
Newell, Lanesborough, Mass.

Historical Intelligence 

Heraldry. — The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society strongly recommends that all coats of arms which can be 

proved to be authentic be offered for record 
with tins Society. The arrangements for the 
making and preservation of such records are 
complete, and the volume of recorded arms has 
been begun by the entry therein of a number of 
well-authenticated coats. Printed forms and 
directions for the making of applications may 
be obtained from the Committee, and all com- 
munications on this subject should be addressed 
to the Committee on Heraldry, New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston. 

Without taking any position with reference to 
the propriety of assuming arms, the Committee 
will be glad to examine arms or heraldic devices 
which any person or organization desires to as- 
sume, and give advice as to whether the same are heraldically correct or whether 
they violate a right of exclusive use heretofore acquired by others.

were parchments or other materials from which one or more writings had been erased to give room

task of scholars not only to translate the later records but also to reconstruct the original writings 
by deciphering the dim fragments of letters partly erased and partly covered by subsequent texts."

THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL TABLET 

A bronze tablet in memory of Abraham Lincoln was unveiled 
on Wednesday, 31 May 1922, in the stair hall of the building of the 
New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston. Invitations 
to attend the ceremony had been sent by the Special Committee on 
Mural Memorials to members of the Society and their friends and 
to representatives of a few kindred organizations in Massachusetts, 
and the company assembled in Wilder Hall at 3.30 P.M. On the 
platform were John Carroll Chase, President of the Society, Robert 
Dickson Weston and William Streeter Richardson, of the Special 
Committee on Mural Memorials, and the speakers of the afternoon, 
Rev. Charles Edwards Park, D.D., and Charles William Eliot, LL.D. 
Mr. Weston, as Chairman of the Committee, opened the exercises 
with a brief address of welcome, speaking as follows : 

"On behalf of the committee that invited you to attend this 
ceremony, I extend to our honored guests and fellow members of 
the Society a cordial welcome. 

"It has been the duty of my committee to supervise the designing 
and inscribing of a great many tablets. Many have interested us 
greatly, but none has interested us nearly so much as this tablet in 
honor of Lincoln. . After much deliberation we decided that it should 
take the form of a bronze bas-relief. We then selected the artist, 
and watched the progress of his work. Now that the tablet has been 
cast in bronze and fixed in its place on the wall, we have called our 
friends and our neighbors together, saying l Rejoice with us.' 

"We all owe a great debt to the sculptor, Mr. Frederick W. Allen. 
I had hoped that Mr. Allen would be here this afternoon, so that 
you all might have had an opportunity to meet a great master of 
his art and tell him how noble and beautiful a portrait he has made. 

"From the first my committee felt a great solicitude about this 
tablet. We were very anxious that it should be a worthy tribute 
to Lincoln himself, and we also were anxious that it should be worthy 
of the sentiment which prompted Mr. Robert Todd Lincoln to give 
a tablet in memory of his father to our New England Society. 

VOL. lxxvi. 11 



164 The Lincoln Memorial Tablet [July 

" Lincoln himself never knew that his family came out of New- 
England. For about forty years his son has known that the President's 
great-great-grandfather was Mordecai Lincoln, born in Scituate, 
himself a grandson of Samuel Lincoln, one of the half dozen Lincolns 
who settled at Hingham between 1630 and 1640 and are all believed 
to have come from Norfolk. Mordecai's maternal grandfather was 
Abraham Jones of Hull, and this obviously accounts for the fact 
that the name Abraham was given to Mordecai's brother, to his 
grandson, and to his great-great-grandson. The President's surname, 
therefore, goes back to our Hingham and his Christian name to our 
Hull. The sentimental value which Mr. Lincoln attaches to his 
father's New England origin makes a special and peculiarly strong 
appeal to the sympathy of all who care about New England genealogy. 

" Anxious as we were at the outset, we have felt no anxiety and 
no misgivings since Mr. Allen first permitted us to see his work. 
Of its merit each of you will in a few moments be able to judge for 
himself. 

"Having bidden you welcome, I now surrender the conduct of 
our simple exercises to the President of the Society." 

President Chase spoke as follows: 

" Yesterday witnessed the dedication, in Washington, of a grateful 
nation's memorial to the martyred and immortal Lincoln. To-day 
we assemble to add our bit of silver to the golden tribute of yester- 
day, feeling assured that no more noble portrait can adorn a panel 
in this Historic Genealogical Hall of Fame. 

"The remarks by Mr. Weston, to which you have just listened, 
leave nothing for me to do but to present the next speaker, and I 
have the pleasure of introducing Rev. Charles Edwards Park, D.D., 
minister of the First Church in Boston." 

Dr. Park, advancing to the front of the platform, said: 

"People who take a disinterested view of our country's history 
declare that in our treatment of the memory of Abraham Lincoln 
we have laid aside the critical faculty and have developed what they 
call the Lincoln myth. This means, as we understand it, that our 
popular conception of Lincoln is guided so completely by ^reverent 
and affectionate gratitude that it lacks photographic verisimilitude. 
It is not a strictly authentic portrait. It is idealized by our admira- 
tion. We love him too much to apply the critical method of por- 
traiture. We allow his weaknesses to be disguised and forgotten 
behind his greatness. We attribute to him qualities of wisdom and 
moral worth to which he himself would have made no claim. We 
make him the type of American manhood, the personification of 
civic virtue and wisdom, the beloved object of our ardent hero 
worship. 

"Doubtless the thoroughgoing biographer would find much to 
deplore in this habit of ours. He might object that a great man's 
memory never does so much good to posterity, all things considered, 
as when it is preserved in terms of strict historical accuracy and 



1922] The Lincoln Memorial Tablet 165 

precision; that any departure from the authenticated facts is bound 
to weaken the portrait; and that to overidealize the portrait in an 
impulse of ardent gratitude is in its way as harmful as to caricature 
the portrait in an impulse of resentment and detraction. 

"We have no quarrel with the biographer. He is welcome to 
treat Abraham Lincoln as he will. We can only fall back upon the 
guidance of intuition and say that there is a power in the personality 
of Abraham Lincoln which can never be discovered by the methods 
of pedantry. One hardly gets an adequate idea of the Pyramid of 
Cheops by studying it through a microscope. Our intuition tells us 
that in Lincoln's case the method of minute precision is not the 
right instrument to use, if we wish to secure an adequate under- 
standing. There was in Lincoln a very marked spiritual and moral 
consistency which makes it necessary to contemplate him as a whole, 
if anything like a correct estimate is to be gained. Some men are 
best studied piecemeal. Their natures are broken up into contradic- 
tions; and the only fair way to appraise their good qualities is to 
segregate those good qualities and examine them independently of 
the rest of their natures. This is precisely the method that cannot 
be applied to Lincoln. 

"For the most noticeable thing about him was the unity of his 
make-up. He never acted by departments. The whole man always 
functioned in every thing he did; and the only way to see him truly 
is to see him whole. Add to this fact of his spiritual unity the further 
fact of his spiritual and moral stature, and we begin to understand 
why it is that an idealization of Lincoln is not only inevitable but 
justified. Because of his gigantic moral stature it is impossible to 
get the whole man within the narrow compass of a close-up field of 
vision. We have to look at him at a distance, in something approx- 
imating a complete perspective. We have to look at him in connec- 
tion with his times and surroundings, in his true context of circum- 
stance; for it is peculiarly true in his case that the man and the 
circumstance acted and reacted upon each other intimately and 
constantly. If circumstance hastened and determined his own self- 
development, it is equally true that he moulded and determined 
circumstance. 

"Now in order to see a man of Lincoln's moral stature, as a whole, 
in his true relation to time and circumstance, it is necessary to take 
the distant view. And we can have no hesitation in saying that 
Lincoln was one of those rare men who are never seen truly unless 
they are seen at a distance. This explains why it is that, as his 
beloved figure recedes from our sight upon the swift current of time, 
we feel for him an increasing affection and an increasing admiration. 
It also explains why it is that this idealizing process has set in: the 
very distancv at which it is necessary to see him truly tends to conceal 
and disguise his faults. We cannot distinguish the faults at that 
distance, and to that extent our vision of him may be imperfect. 
But we have no choice. We have got to accept these imperfections 
in our vision, in order to get that infinitely grander and more truthful 
vision which only distance can give. We have got to sacrifice the 
lesser truths in order to possess the greater. If this be idealization, 



166 The Lincoln Memorial Tablet [July 

we shall have to plead guilty. We have no choice but to idealize 
him for the sake of that truer knowledge which only idealization can 
give. 

"As we look at him thus, it becomes possible for us to recognize 
the nature of the man's make-up and to understand, so to speak, 
the 'lay of the land' in his spirit. As we have seen, there was in 
him a certain singleness of design, a moral and spiritual unity. All 
his traits and characteristics may be related directly to that primal 
source. The thoughtful biographer of Lincoln can hardly help 
wishing he were a musician, or at least had at his command some- 
thing of the musician's technique. For Lincoln's character lends 
itself admirably to the idiom and structural method of musical 
composition. There was in him the single, principal theme, controlling 
the whole symphony and furnishing the source from which were 
derived the several variations of movement and developments of 
mood. That single, principal theme was his love of humankind. 
He had a natural affection for people. Human interest amounted 
in him to a passion. 

"Something of this love of humankind we all have. It is one of 
the instincts of our human nature. But where in some of us this human 
interest exhausts itself upon our own persons and the members of 
our immediate family circles, and where in others this human interest 
finds its satisfaction in a relatively narrow list of friends and fellow 
travellers in the same walks of life, with Lincoln it included every- 
body, and felt itself cheated if any were left out. As Emerson said 
of him, ' His heart was wide as the world.' He was a lover of humanity. 
He believed in human nature. In him the basic assumption which 
underlies our whole political theory, the assumption that ordinary 
human nature can be trusted to choose on the whole wisely and to 
act on the whole rightly, found its supreme embodiment. What 
Lowell said of him therefore is not superficially but profoundly true. 
He was the first American, because in him was found in its full 
majesty precisely that confidence in mankind upon which we have 
dared and still dare to vindicate our theory of American citizenship. 
"It is worth noting that the possession of this world-wide human 
interest puts Abraham Lincoln in the small class of the world's 
greatest ones, the servants and prophets of our humanity, who at 
various times have appeared to guide and rectify the course of human 
development, and who, though working in different places and 
through different methods, have one and all possessed that single 
supreme gift, an all-embracing love of mankind. It is worth noting 
also, either as a most happy coincidence, or as indicating the presence 
of that Divinity that doth shape our ends, roughhew them as we 
will, that, just at the moment when our political theory was called 
upon to endure its most critical ordeal, the championship of that 
theory was entrusted to one who in himself exemplified in perfect 
measure the very convictions on which the theory is built. Lincoln 
was more than one of the people. In a larger sense, he was the people. 
He understood his nation better in some respects than his nation 
understood itself. He knew the hearts of his countrymen. He 
thought their truest thoughts for them. In him the Nation discovered 



1922] The Lincoln Memorial Tablet 167 

its true self personified. And his triumph was no mere private affair. 
It was the triumph of a whole people, the triumph of a whole phi- 
losophy of life vindicating itself, at the moment of its gravest ordeal, 
through the fateful words and actions of one who was himself the 
spiritual type and representative of that people and of that philosophy 
of life. In his actions America acted; and in his success America 
succeeded. 

"In his supreme human interest, then, we may justly feel that 
we possess the master key to Lincoln's character. His love of human- 
kind was the main theme of the entire symphony of his nature, and 
all his other traits and characteristics were but the logical develop- 
ments of this theme. His patience was the patience of one who 
trusts and can afford to wait. His mercy, his hatred of every form 
of cruelty and injustice, iris ever-ready sympathy — these were only 
what we might expect in one who loved his fellow creatures. His 
political wisdom was something far more profound than the mere 
political shrewdness which we know all too well; it was the kind of 
wisdom that comes when 'love teaches the monarch to be wise' and 
to speak and act as a representative of the truer wishes and idealisms 
of his nation. His rectitude, his self-sacrifice were equally the natural 
developments of this main theme. Personal temptations and personal 
ambition were as real to him as to any ordinary man, but were 
quite unable to resist the prior claims of a human solicitude which 
• swept them aside as being hostile to its own nobler purposes. 

"We might sum it all up by saying that Lincoln was one of those 
men in whom the love of mankind was not a passive but an active 
principle, not a negative condition but a positive force, not an armor 
of defense but a weapon of offense. Understanding that, we find 
his whole life hanging together as a simple unity — logical, consistent, 
harmonious throughout. And understanding that, we discover in 
the manner of his death a tragic sublimity that throws an unearthly 
grandeur over all his days, because it adds the last touch of symbolism 
to a life that had been governed by devotion to mankind and had 
been spent in the service of those eternal principles of justice and 
right on which alone man's life can prosper.'' 

At the conclusion of Dr. Park's address the ushers led the way to 
the entrance floor of the building, where President Chase presented 
Dr. Charles William Eliot, an honorary member of the Society, 
who needed no introduction to the assemblage. The flag over the 
tablet was slowly withdrawn by Abigail Aldrich, the little daughter 
of William Truman Aldrich, a member of the Committee; and 
President Eliot and the members of the Society, gathered in the 
corridor and on the staircase, stood for a moment in silence, looking 
at the bas-relief. Then President Eliot said: 

"This portrait represents Abraham Lincoln as a younger man 
than we have been accustomed to see him in photographs and 
engravings. The face is not so furrowed with lines which care and 
sorrow later made upon it. On that very account, it is a beautiful 



168 The Lincoln Memorial Tablet [July 

and impressive likeness, especially welcome in this Society's building. 

"I never saw Abraham Lincoln, and I never heard him speak; 
but inevitably, because of my profession, my earliest interest in him 
related to his education, and to his opinions and his action with 
regard to the education of his son Robert at Exeter and Harvard. 

" Abraham Lincoln's education was extremely meagre as regards 
schooling and contact with educated persons. He had in his own 
nature a very strong love of reading and an intense desire to learn; 
and through that love of reading and that ambition to learn, he 
obtained an education of marvellous efficacy. His favorite books 
were the Bible and Shakespeare; and these two books he mastered 
as few men have ever done. From them he learned the simple, clear, 
and idiomatic English which distinguished both his speeches and 
his writings throughout life. From these books he stored his mind 
with the images, symbols, and phrases which illustrated his public 
and private thought and action. 

"Lincoln's training in the law was very scanty; but he promptly 
succeeded at the Bar, because of his ; clear and just thinking, and 
the influence of his speech and character on the minds of juries, and 
judges, and of the public interested in the cases he argued. When 
he began to take part in political discussion and action, it was again 
the power of his spoken word which gave him his remarkable success. 

"One would like to think that Lincoln often felt joy in exercising 
his remarkable powers of statement and persuasion; but there is 
little evidence that he ever felt that enjoyment. His Gettysburg 
Address is the finest piece of English ever written, matchless in 
dignity, justness, and fitness; but as he returned to Washington he 
felt and said that it was a failure; and he probably never realized 
how memorable an utterance he had made that day. 

"Like many another great man, his very greatness often left him 
alone, solitary in his thoughts and his actions. When he first sub- 
mitted to his Cabinet the tentative draft of his Emancipation Proc- 
lamation, not a man in that Cabinet supported his proposal. Lincoln 
waited for a few weeks, and when he thought the time was ripe, he 
issued the Proclamation on his sole responsibility, months before 
the military situation had begun to brighten. 

"Let me read to you as you stand looking at this tablet the last 
paragraph of Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address — an address 
given several weeks before the surrender at Appomattox and the 
entry of the Northern troops into Richmond: 

'With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, 
as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; 
to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the 
battle, and for his widow, and his orphan — to do all which may achieve 
and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves, and with all nations.' 

"As we listen to this sentence we realize what an immense loss 
the American people suffered from the absence of Abraham Lincoln 
in the Reconstruction period. In these few words Lincoln described, 
fifty-seven years ago, the solemn duty of the American people toward 
the World at the present hour. 



1922] The Lincoln Memorial Tablet 169 

''Only a poet can adequately describe in a few words Abraham 
Lincoln's character, or set forth the nature of his enduring fame. 
Let me therefore read to you two verses — the first and the last — 
from Bryant's short poem on the Death of Lincoln: 

'Oh, slow to smite and swift to spare, 

Gentle and merciful and just! 
Who, in the fear of God, didst bear 
The sword of power, a nation's trust! 

'Pure was thy life; its bloody close 

Hath placed thee with the sons of light, 
Among the noble host of those 

Who perished in the cause of Right.' " 

With President Eliot's address the formal ceremonies connected 
with the unveiling of the tablet were brought to a close, and refresh- 
ments were served in the John Foster Memorial Room, which had 
been decorated with an abundance of flowers generously provided 
by Miss Mary Foster Bartlett from her Manchester estate. Mrs. 
Florence Conant Howes of the Committee had charge of the tea 
room. Mrs. Robert Dickson Weston of Cambridge and Mrs. Edmund 
Ingersoll Leeds of Newton presided at the table, and were assisted 
by Mrs. Samuel Cate Prescott of Brookline, Miss Elizabeth Prentiss 
Fowle of Dorchester, the Misses Harriet Scott, Frances Burrage, 
and Helen Macgregor of RadclirTe College, Miss Elizabeth Leeds of 
Newton, Miss Elsie McCormack of Manchester, and Miss Mildred 
Dutton of Dorchester. In the Library an interesting collection of 
Lincoln mementoes was on exhibition, loaned by Mrs. Florence L. 
Dunham of Winthrop, a granddaughter of Mrs. Rebecca Rossignol 
Pomroy, who served from time to time as a nurse- in the Lincoln 
household while Mr. Lincoln was President. The collection com- 
prised autographs, photographs, a glass, a plate, and various other 
pieces associated with the President and his family. 

The ushers for the exercises were Messrs. Edmund Ingersoll Leeds 
of the Special Committee, Wm. Sumner Appleton, Courtenay Guild, 
Alfred Johnson, Thornton Kirkland Lothrop, John McKinstry 
Merriam, George Andrews Moriarty, Jr., and Charles Sedgwick 
Rackemann. 

The Lincoln tablet, a representation of which appears as the 
frontispiece in this number of the Register, is one of a series of 
notable memorial tablets which members of the Society are placing 
in the panels on the walls of the stair hall of the Society's building, 
to commemorate their ancestors or kinsmen who took part in the 
founding, development, or preservation of the Nation. The designs 
are drawn by artists and architects of high standing, under the 
supervision of the Special Committee on Mural Memorials, anp 



170 Records of St. James's Church, Derby, Conn. [July 

the inscriptions are framed to meet the wishes of the donors and 
the requirements of the Committee. Already more than thirty 
tablets have been affixed to the walls, and nearly fifty more remain 
to be executed. Among the individuals thus commemorated are 
John Alden, Susannah Fuller, John Howland, and Thomas Rogers 
and his son Joseph — all of the Mayflower, John Wilson, pastor of 
the First Church in Boston, Richard, Increase, and Cotton Mather, 
Gov. Thomas 'Dudley, his daughter Anne, and her husband, Gov. 
Simon Bradstreet, Ezekiel Cheever, the famous schoolmaster, 
William Pynchon, founder of Springfield, Edward Converse, founder 
of Woburn, Samuel and Sarah Hinckley and their son, Gov. Thomas 
Hinckley, of the Plymouth Colony, Roger Williams, founder of 
Rhode Island, and his wife, Mary Barnard, Stephen Hopkins, gover-

INSCRIPTIONS IN THE MUDDY BROOK CEMETERY, 
GREAT BARRINGTON, MASS. 

Copied by Mrs. Mary E. Walton and Miss Emma Lee Walton 

of Chicago, 111. 

Below are given all the inscriptions in the Muddy Brook Cemetery, 
in Great Barrington, Mass., which could be found there on 23 Sept. 
1921, when they were transcribed from the gravestones. The exact 
wording of the inscriptions has been followed, but quotations from 
the Scriptures and verses of no genealogical interest have been 
omitted. The punctuation has been inserted by the Editor. 

In the "Vital Records of Great Barrington," published by the 
New England Historic Genealogical Society in 1904, the only grave- 
stone records used were those from the South Cemetery. The deaths 
of only a few of the persons buried in the Muddy Brook Cemetery 
are found in the town and church records which were used in com- 
piling the printed book, and therefore the inscriptions which follow 
furnish a considerable addition to the vital records of the town.

OLD BOSTON FAMILIES 

Number Six* 
THE LEE FAMILY 





By Thomas Amory Lee, A.M., LL.B., of Topeka, Kans. 

The Lee family which forms the subject of this article has been 
prominent in Boston for the last one hundred and fifty years, and 
was long supposed to be a branch of the Lee family of Marblehead 
and Manchester.! In the earlier generations no connection between 
the two families can be definitely shown, but in more recent times 
Col. Henry Lee (10) and his brother, Col. Francis L Lee (11), of the 
Boston family, were cousins of Gen. William Raymond Lee of 
Boston, who belonged to the Marblehead family, by reason of a 
common maternal descent from the Tracy family of Newbury port, t 
It has been suggested that Thomas Lee, son of Henry and Mary 
Lee of Manchester, was identical with Thomas Lee of Boston (vide 
infra, 2). But the records tend to show that Thomas Lee, son of 
Henry, was a soldier in Capt. William Raymond's company in the 
Canadian expedition of 1690, from which, apparently, he never 
returned, and in 1697 his brothers, John and Samuel Lee of Marble- 
head, divided his property, including land received for military 
services.! 

Henry Lee, the founder of the Marblehead family, was probably 
the Henry Lee who was admitted as an inhabitant of Boston, with 
his family, in 1655. His wife was named Mary, and they had a son 
Richard, born in Boston 2 Aug. 1657, of whom nothing further is 
known. A Thomas Lee was taxed in Boston in 1681, a John Lee was 
taxed there in 1687, 1688, 1691, and 1695, and a Joshua Lee was 
taxed there in 1688. A Samuel Lee of Middlesex County died in

1677, leaving £8 of silver, a musket, a sword, etc.* In 1647 John 
Lee, "late of Sawco in the Province of Maine/' mortgaged to Adam 
Winthrop of Boston, son of Gov. John Winthrop, for £12, one cow, 
two heifers, and a bull, in the hands of Ralph Trustram and William 
Hammond of "Cape porpas."t William Lee was probably a brother 
or half brother of Thomas Lee (2) of the Boston family, and there was 
a John Lee who was possibly a relative of Thomas and William; 
but the exact relationship between these men cannot be proved, 
and information about William and John Lee and their families will 
be given in an Addendum at the end of this article. The Christian 
name of the founder of the Boston family, with whom this article 
begins, is not known. { 

1. x Lee (or Leigh), of Boston, married, probably before 

1673, Martha Mellowes, who was born in Boston 8 Feb. 1653/4, 
daughter of John and Martha of Boston. § She was living 29 Jan.

JThe compiler of this article is greatly indebted to the kindness of the late Charles Pickering 
Bowditch, A.M., of Jamaica Plain, for permission to make use of the very considerable Lee data 
collected in his valuable Pickering Genealogy. 

§ Abraham Mellowes was admitted to the church at Charlestown, with his wife Martha and 
his son Edward, 19 Aug. 1633. He was freeman 14 May 1634, and died as early as 1639, his will 
being mentioned in the General Court on 4 June of the latter year. About 1630, before coming to 
New England, he invested £50 in the stock of the Massachusetts Bay Company. He left six 
children. 

Sergt. Edward Mellowes, of Charlestown, one of the children of Abraham, was probably born 
in England, and probably came to New England with his father and mother, being admitted to 

the church with them on 19 Aug. 1633. He married Hannah . He was freeman 4 Mar. 

1633/4, constable in 1637, and was town clerk and selectman of Charlestown five years. He died 
5 May 1650, and his widow married (2) 24 June 1651, as his second wife, Joseph Hills of Maiden, 
and was dead in Jan. 1655/6, when Joseph Hills solemnized his own marriage to his third wife, 
Helen Atkinson. Edward and Hannah Mellowes had the following children: 1. Hannah, bapt. 
22 Nov. 1636. 2. Mary, b. 21 July 1638. 3. Martha, b. 26 Oct. 1640; d. 25 Feb. 1642/3. 4. Edward. 
5. Elizabeth, b. 5 Mar. 1643/4. 6. Abraham, b. 22 June 1645. 

Oliver Mellowes, perhaps son of Abraham and brother of Edward, was admitted to the church 
in Boston, with his wife Elizabeth, 20 July 1634, and was freeman 3 Sept. 1634. He was one of the 
followers of Mrs. Anne Hutchinson and Rev. John Wheelwright, and, with others, was disarmed 
by the General Court in 1637. He died at Braintree, where he had probably taken up his abode; 
the inventory of his estate, amounting to £210. 19s., was taken 12 Nov. 1638; and administration 
on his estate was granted 5 Dec. 1638 to his widow, Elizabeth Mellowes, who took oath to the 
inventory 17 Feb. 1638/9. (Register, vol. 30, pp. 78-79.) She married (2) not later than 25 July 
1641, as his second. wife, Thomas Makepeace of Dorchester and later of Boston, who petitioned 
the Court, 22 May 1651, for power to sell land in Braintree for the benefit of the six children of 
Oliver Mellowes and gave security, with the eldest son John, for the payment of the portions of 
the younger children. Thomas Makepeace made his will 30 June 1666, and in the inventory of 
his estate, dated 2 Mar. 1666/7 and showing property valued at £291. 7s. Id., he is described as 
"lately deceased." His wife Elizabeth was living 30 June 1666. The children of Oliver Mellowes 

were: 1. John, eldest son, b., probably in England, about 1620. 2. , probably b. in England. 

3. Mary (perhaps the second child), probably b. in England; living 30 June 1666, when she is 
mentioned in the will of Thomas Makepeace, her stepfather; m. about 1653 or earlier James Dennis 
of Boston. 4. Samuel, bapt. in Boston 7 Dec. 1634. 5. Martha, bapt. in Boston 6 Mar. 1635/6; 
living 30 June 1666, when she is mentioned in the will of her stepfather; m. in Boston, 13 Sept. 
1655, Joseph Waters. 6. Mary, bapt. in Boston 26 Aug. 1638; living 30 June 1666, when she is 
mentioned in the will of her stepfather; m. in Boston, 13 Sept. 1655, Emanuel Springfield, with 
whom she was living in Old England in 1666. (Cf. will of Thomas Makepeace, in Genealogy of 
the Makepeace Families, Boston, 1858, pp. 15-20.) 

John Mellowes of Boston, eldest son of Oliver, was born, probably in England, about 1620, for he 
deposed 30 Jan. 1673/4, aged about 53 years, and died between 15 Dec. 1674 and 29 Jan. 1674/5. 

He married Martha , who was born about 1630, for she deposed 30 Jan. 1673/4, aged 

about 43 years. He was freeman in 1671, and had a grant of land in the Stonington country. His 
wife Martha, a kinswoman of Rev. John Cotton, survived him, and married (2), as his second 
wife, Deane Winthrop of Pulling Point (now Winthrop), sixth son of Gov. John Winthrop. He 
was born in England, was brought to New England by his brother John in the Abigail in 1635, aged 
12 years, had several children by his first wife, Sarah Glover, daughter of Jos£, and died 16 Mar.

1674/5, when, as Martha Lee, she took oath to a codicil attached to 
her father's will and witnessed by her,* but she was dead by 26 Oct. 
1704, when her son, Thomas Lee of Boston, blockmaker (vide infra, 
2), and her mother, Martha Winthrop of Boston, widow, conveyed 
to Robert Ware of Boston, housewright, for 20 pounds, one-third of 
a lot of land in Coney's Lane, Boston. f 
Child: 
2. i. Thomas, 2 b. probably in Boston about 1673. 

2. Thomas 2 Lee ( l ), born, according to his obituary notice, 

about 1673, died in Boston 16 July 1766. He married Deborah 
Flint, born in 1672, died 3 Apr. 1763, daughter of Ensign 
Edward and Elizabeth (Hart) of Salem, Elizabeth Hart being 
the daughter of John and Mary Hart. Ensign Edward Flint 
was apparently the son of William and Alice Flint of Salem. 
No wife, however, signed with Thomas Lee in 1704, when he 
and his grandmother, Mrs. Winthrop, conveyed one-third of 
a lot in Coney's Lane, Boston, t 

He was brought up by his grandmother, Mrs. Deane Win- 
throp, and upon her death he sued "Honble Wait Winthrop, 
Esqr and Adam Winthrop Esqre" for her funeral expenses, 
losing his case in the lower court but winning it on appeal. 
He appears in numerous deeds as Thomas Lee, blockmaker, or, 
sometimes, merchant. In 1717 John Wentworth, Esq., of 
Portsmouth sold to Thomas Lee of Boston, blockmaker, for 
£640, the Castle Tavern on Ship Street, Boston. § In 1726 
he bought of Jonas Clarke a triangular piece of land on Bennett 

1703/4. His widow, Martha ( ) (Mellowes) Winthrop, was living 6 May 1706, when she, 

calling herself "Martha Winthrope Executrix of the Last Will of her former Husband . . . John 
Mellows Sen r , " with Jonathan Gatchell and Martha his wife, only child of John Mellows, Jr., 
deceased, acknowledged a document, dated 2 May 1706, in which they chose John Barnard and 
John Goodwin to lay out a four-foot way provided for in the will of her first husband (Suffolk 
Deeds, lib. 23, fo. 3). John Mellowes, Sr., of Boston, in his will, dated 15 Dec. 1674 and proved 
29 Jan. 1674/5, devised to his son John the new .house and the ground at the end of it, John to 
pay to his mother 50 pounds in five \ ears' time, and bequeathed to his daughters Martha and 
Saray, to his son Oliver, and to his (the testator's) children. In a codicil, to which Martha Lee 
(the testator's daughter) was a witness, the testator appointed his wife Martha Mellowes sole 
executrix and his sons John Chanterell and John Mellowes overseers. (Suffolk Probate Records, 
vol. 6, p. 79.) The inventory of the estate of John Mellows, brought in by Martha Mellows 29 Jan. 
1674/5, amounted to £202. 7s. 6d. (t'b., vol. 5, p. 224). The children of John and Martha Mellowes 
were: 1. John, b. in Boston 8 Apr. 1647; d. 19 Apr. 1647. 2. John, b. probably about 1650; living 

15 Dec. 1674; deceased by 6 June 1684, when his mother, Martha Winthrope, gave a receipt for 
the 50 pounds due from him under his father's will and acquitted "my Daughter in Law Sarah 
Mellowes, the Relict of my s d Son John," etc., from liability for this sum, this receipt being 
acknowledged by Martha Winthrope 22 Apr. 1700 (Suffolk Deeds, lib. 20, fo. 501); m. Sarah 

; had issue: John, b. in Boston 5 Mar. 1675/6, Elisha, b. in Boston 16 Mar. 1680/1, Martha, 

living 5 May 1706, being then the wife of Jonathan Gatchell (to whom she was married in Boston 
10 July 1701) and described as the only [surviving] child of her father, and perhaps other children. 

3. Martha, b. in Boston 8 Feb. 1653/4; m. Lee (or Leigh) of Boston, the New England 

founder of the Lee family which forms the subject of this article. 4. Elizabeth, b. in Boston 15 Dec.

Street, Boston, between the land of said Lee and "my Garden 
Land."* In 1731 he bought of his son, Thomas Lee, Jr., 
merchant, 'land and buildings on Bennett Street, bounded 
ninety-two feet southeasterly by John Charnock, and sold 
them to John Steel in 1734 for £1700. t In 1748 and 1750 he 
loaned money to William Lee of Boston, shipwright, who was 
apparently a near relative (vide infra, Addendum), and received 
mortgages in return, t In 1708 he bought land on Sun Street 
of Stephen French and in 1712 land on Bennett Street of Job 
Bull.§ He was a prosperous merchant, and was chosen by the 
town for certain minor offices, such as that of constable. He 
seems to have been licensed at various times to sell strong 
drink and to have kept the Castle Tavern. || 

He lived in a mansion house on Bennett Street, in the North 
End of Boston, near the Universalist Church of later years, 
and was the seventh signer of the agreement of the twenty- 
four members of the New North Church who seceded in dis- 
gust when Rev. Peter Thacher was called to its pulpit. They 
founded the New Brick Church on Hanover Street, nearby, 
sometimes called the Cockerel Church on account of' the 
weather vane, which was later occupied by the Old North 
Church Society. He was on every committee of this church 
from its foundation to his death, the entertainments on ordi- 
nation and other feast days were always held at his Bennett 
Street mansion, and he was, after much persuasion, prevailed 
upon to be chairman of the meetings. He was its deacon and 
treasurer, was thanked by the church for his generous gift of 
pews, and was, with Hon. Thomas Hutchinson and three other 
dignitaries, "desired to sit in the front as long as he thought 
proper."T[ 

Dea. John Tudor of the same church noticed his death as 
follows: March 16, 1769, "This Morning we heard of Deacon 
Lee's Death. He Died last night pretty suddenly M 90. The 
last of the Founders of our Church."** No Thomas Lee is known 
'to have died in Boston in 1769, and the notice seems to refer 
to our Thomas Lee, who died 16 July 1766, according to the 
following obituary, which appeared in the Supplement to the 
Boston Gazette of Monday, 21 July 1766: 

"Wednesday Morning died Mr. Thomas Lee, in the 94th year of 
his Age, who in the early and active Part of Life carried on consider- 
able Trade in this Town, tho' he deserves to be recorded, rather for 
the unblemished Integrity of his Dealings, and the exact Punctuality 
of his Payments, than for the Extent of his Trade, or the Length 
of his Life." 

He was buried in his tomb on Copp's Hill. He used upon 
his will an heraldic seal with the device of a demi-lion rampart,

the characteristic bearing of the families of Leigh of the East 
Hall in High Leigh, co. Chester, England, and of Leigh of the 
West Hall. Col. Henry Lee ( 10) of Boston, one of his descendants, 
describes him as "an honest, modest, industrious, prosperous 
'North End' citizen, entrusted with many duties by town and 
church, all of which he accepted, except the highest, which 
from modesty, he declined, or accepted only after repeated 
elections."* 

The will of Thomas Lee of Boston, "Merchant," is dated 
2 Dec. 1760, and was proved 8 Aug. 1766. All his real estate 
was left to his wife, Deborah, for life, two-sixths of the residue 
to his son Joseph (who was to have a double portion as though 
he were the eldest son, and the children of the deceased son 
Thomas were to be content with but a single portion), one- 
sixth each to his daughters Deborah Love, Abigail Lee, and 
Mary Shipperd, and one-sixth to the children of his deceased 
son Thomas, viz., Elizabeth Newell, Thomas Lee, Joseph Lee, 
and Lois Lee. His wife and his son Joseph Lee were to be 
executors. The witnesses were Henry Atkins, Henry Atkins, 
Jr., Robert Breck, and William Ford. 

His inventory amounted to £2,055. 5s. 10d., and included 
two pictures, one eight-day clock, silver plate valued at £60. 
19s. 2d., one musket, two pistols, one chaise and harness, one 
Negro man, one pew in the New Brick Meeting House, the 
mansion house on Bennett Street, valued at £600, and four 
other houses, including "ye King's head Tavern" occupied 
by Mr. William Bennett (William Bennett was married, 11 
May 1710, to Jane Lee, by Rev. Dr. Cotton Mather). On 
31 Oct. 1766, the wife being dead, the land of "Mr. 
Thomas Lee, Merchant," was divided among his heirs as 
follows: to Joseph Lee, Esq., the mansion house and land on 
Bennett Street; to the heirs of Thomas Lee, Jr., a house and 
land in the northerly part of Boston Common, known as the 
Castle Tavern ; to Miss Abigail Lee, a house and land on Ship 
Street, on Lee's Wharf 90 feet; to Mrs. Mercy Shippard, part 
of the wharf and stores, and a house and land on Court Street ; 
to Mrs. Deborah Love, Lee's Wharf and stores. The division 
was completed 27 Mar. 1767 by John Tudor and two others.

1755, Rebecca Phips, b. 14 Feb. 1727, dau. of Hon. Col. Spencer, 
Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, and Elizabeth (Hutchin- 
son) . At Harvard he was placed eleventh in a class of twenty-three. 
He was a classmate of Richard Clarke, consignee of the tea made 
famous by the Boston Tea Party. He was a merchant of Boston 
and owned the mansion house of his father on Bennett Street and 
the Castle Tavern on Ship Street, bounded northerly by the Old 
North Church land.* He was one of the founders of Christ Church 
in Cambridge. In 1759 he was on the building committee of the 
Church and was chosen warden in 1773. In 1770 he was on a com- 
mittee of the town to choose a summer schoolmaster. In 1756 he 
was commissioned a justice of the peace for Suffolk Countv, and 
in 1760, 1761, and 1764 for Middlesex County. On 7 Mar. 1764 he 
was a special justice of the Court of Common Pleas; on 24 May 
1769 he succeeded Andrew Boardman, Esq., as a regular justice 
of the same court; and on 30 Aug. 1770 and 17 Feb. and 4 Mar. 
1773 he was commissioned a special justice of the Superior Court of 
Judicature. He was a deputy to the General Court in 1764 and 
1765, and was commissioned a mandamus councillor 9 Aug. 1774. 
He took the oath of office as a councillor, but was forced to resign 
by the great mob which paid its respects to Lee, Phipps, and Oliver. 
The Boston Gazette} published his resignation: "At Cambridge, 
2d Sept., 1774. As great numbers of the inhabitants of the County 
are come into this town since my satisfying those who were met, 
not only by declaration but by reading to them what I wrote to 
the Governor at my resignation, and being desirous to give the 
whole County and Province full satisfaction in this matter, I 
hereby declare my resignation of a seat in the new constituted 
Council, and my determination to give no farther attendance. 
Jos. Lee. A true copy. Test. Nath. Cudworth, CI." He was a 
Loyalist, but took no active part in the Revolution. He was in 
Boston during the siege, and then returned to his home in Cam- 
bridge. His fine old mansion, J preserved for many years by Col. 
Henry Lee of Boston, was on the corner of Brattle and Appleton 
Streets, between the Longfellow house, formerly owned by Hon. 
Nathaniel Tracy, Esq., who married a daughter of Col. Jeremiah 
Lee of Marblehead, and the home of Judge Lee's nephew, Thomas 
Lee, which in turn was next to the house of Judge Lechmere, later 
owned by Thomas Lee, Esq., ancestor of Bishop Alfred Lee of 
Delaware. Judge and Mrs. Lee played a prominent part in the 
elegant society of Tory Row, Mrs. Lee being a sister of Mrs. 
Lechmere and Colonel Phips and an aunt of Colonel Vassall and 
Mrs. Oliver. Baroness Riedesel described the community and its 
life as one of the most pleasant which she had ever known. Judge 
Lee devised to Harvard a house and land in Cambridge formerly 
occupied by Professor Samuel Williams and to Caesar, an old 
servant of his father, an annuity, and he divided his good-sized 
estate among his nephews and nieces. The following obituary 
notice of Judge Lee appeared in the Columbian Centinel, 8 Dec. 
1802: "At Cambridge, on Sunday last, Hon. Joseph Lee, aged 93. 
During a long life Judge Lee was respected by all who knew Mm. 
He was distinguished in Society by the manners of a gentleman, 
and by the habits and principles of an honest, honorable man. He 
was a kind neighbor, warm and sincere in his friendship. Attached 
to government from principle, he was a good subject to his king, 
under whom he executed the duties of an important office with 
fidelity and honor, and with equal fidelity he adhered to the gov- 
ernment of the United States, since the Revolution. In attendance 
on religious duties he was exemplary, and, amidst the infirmities of

and received his degree of A.B. in 1866. He went into the counting- 
room of Hon. William Graj^ and afterwards entered the house of 
Cabot & Lee, in which his father was a partner. Having made a 
moderate fortune, he retired early, and devoted himself to land- 
scape gardening. His country seat at Brookline, later owned by 
Professor Charles Sprague Sargent, was a model estate. In 1865 
he gave to the city of Boston a granite statue of Alexander Hamilton, 
by Rimmer, which stands on Commonwealth Avenue, and in 1867 
he built a fountain in the Public Garden, to commemorate the dis- 
covery of the anaesthetic properties of ether. He also gave $35,000 
to Harvard College, $30,000 to Boston for statues, $43,500 to his

WILLIAM LEE AND JOHN LEE OF BOSTON 

William Lee, shipwright, appears in the Boston records from 
1705 to 1750, but probably left Boston before his death, as he was 
a man of property and no administration on his estate has been 
found. He married first, in Boston, 8 Nov. 1705, Rev. Benjamin 
Wadsworth officiating, Mercy Jackson, daughter of John of Bos- 
ton, housewright, deceased, intestate; probably secondly, in Boston, 
24 Aug. 1721, Rev. Benjamin Wadsworth officiating, Ruth Warden; 
thirdly, in Boston, 29 June 1738, Rev. Peter Thacher officiating, 
Rebekah Hood, probably a widow, who died between 25 Apr. 1749, 
when her will was dated, and 30 May 1749, when it was proved; and 
fourthly, in Boston, 24 Aug. 1749, Rev. William Welsted officiating, 
Rebecca Winslow. He is styled "Mr.," and was apparently a 
close relative, probably a brother or half brother, of "Mr. Thomas 
Lee, merchant" (vide supra, 2), two of whose children were named 
William and Mercy. 

On 15 Sept. 1708 William Lea of Boston, shipwright, his wife 
Mercy, and Elizabeth and Abigail Jackson, spinsters, the three 
daughters of the late John Jackson, conveyed to their brothers, 
John and Thomas Jackson of Boston, housewrights, for £60, the 
estate of their father, 32 feet, 2 inches, on the Back Street, leading 
from Mill Bridge to Winnisomet ferry place.* On 9 Sept. 1740 
William Lee, shipwright, and Rebecca his wife mortgaged for £225

land on Middle Street, Boston, and in New Boston to Robert 
Auchmuty of Roxbury, Esq., Samuel Adams and William Stoddard 
of Boston, Esquires, Peter Chardon of Boston, merchant, Samuel 
Watts of Chelsea, Esq., George Leonard of Norton, Esq., Robert 
Hale of Beverly, Esq., John Choate of Ipswich, Esq., and Thomas 
Cheever of Lynn, Gentleman, all directors of the Manufacturing 
Company, so-called, to pay for William Lee's share in the Company.* 
On 18 Mar. 1748 William Lee mortgaged to Thomas Lee of Boston, 
merchant, as security for a debt of £500, a brick building, 33 feet, 
3 inches, on Middle Street, Boston. He acknowledged this deed 
alone, and is called "Mr. William Lee."f On 28 Dec. 1750 he 
again mortgaged the same building, 33 feet, 3 inches, on Middle 
Street, to Thomas Lee, merchant, as security for a debt of £120, his 
wife Rebecca [(Winslow)] joining with him in this conveyance. J On 
7 Aug. 1749 William Lee sold to John Pulling of Boston, shop- 
keeper (father of the brave Maj. John Pulling of the Revolution), 
his wharf and land, 97 feet from the east end of Fish Street, and the 
warehouses, etc., "which I bought of Elisha Cooke, Esq. and Jane, 
his wife."§ 

In her will, dated 25 Apr. 1749 and proved 30 May 1749, Rebekah 

( ) (Hood) Lee, the third wife of William Lee, bequeathed to 

her dear and loving husband, William Lee of Boston, shipwright, her 
pint silver tankard, and left articles of wearing apparel to her sister 
Mary Henchman and her two daughters-in-law [stepdaughters], 
Mercy Elliot and Abiel Guffett [daughters of her husband William 
Lee by his first wife]. To each of her granddaughters, Rebecca 
Howard and Rebecca Clark, she bequeathed a silver cup, to her son 
Com by Hood, she left one-half of the rest of her plate, and to her 
granddaughter Rebecca Hood she gave the other half of her plate, 
her gold chain and gold-spangled necklace, and numerous articles 
of clothing, linen and household stuff. William Lee and her sister 
Mary Henchman were executors, and Mary Goodwin, Elias Jarvis, 
and John Procter were witnesses. ||

There was a William Lay of Boston, victualler, who married, 11 Jan. 1689, Mary Howen, 
daughter of John. Apparently she died not later than 25 July 1694, as on that date William Lay 
and Anna Howin, spinster, daughter of John Howin, conveyed the land and house of said John 
Howin to Returne Mulling of Boston, cooper, the deed being signed only by William Lay and 
Anna Howin. (Suffolk Deeds, lib. 17, fo. 279.)

John Lee, of Boston, mason and limeburner, possibly a relative 
of Thomas Lee (vide supra, 2) and William Lee, died in 1738 or 
1738/9, administration on his estate being granted, 20 Mar. 1738/9, 
to his widow, Mary Lee, with whom Samuel Avis of Boston, block- 
maker, and John Henderson of Boston, merchant, were bound in 
the sum of 5000 pounds, " Currant Money of New England."* He 
married first, at Charlestown, 5 Dec. 1717, Elizabeth Pierce, bap- 
tized at Charlestown 12 Mar. 1693/4, died probably in 1733, daughter 
of John and Elizabeth (Mudge) of Charlestown ;f and secondly 

Mary [? Flynt].{ His widow, Mary, -died soon after 20 Mar. 

1738/9, and administration de bonis non administratis of her late 
husband, John Lee, was granted, 9 Apr. 1739, to Samuel Aves of 
Boston, blockmaker, and John Pearce of Boston, housewright, with 
whom James Varney of Boston, limeburner, and Joseph Rix of 
Boston, housewright, were bound in the sum of 5000 pounds, " Cur- 
rant Money in New-England. "§ 

The inventory of the estate of John Lee, taken 31 Mar. 1739 and 
exhibited by the two administrators 4 Dec. 1739, shows property 
appraised at £4494. 5s. 2d., including the mansion house, land, lime 
kilns, barns, and wharf, £1800; a brick house and land in Cambridge 
Street, in the possession of Mr. Josiah Quincy, £1100; a piece of 
land, £50; a house and land in Stanniford Street, £750; a piece of 
land "by the Copper Works/' £150; one-half of a boat, £30; two 
Negro men, Boston and York, and a Negro woman, Beck, valued 
respectively at £120, £20, and £35; Mr. Lee's wearing apparel, £57. 
12s.; four horses, £49; two carts and tackle, £40; a parcel of lime 
and lime measures, £61. 12s.; household furniture, £220. 6s. 6d.; 
and two large spoons, six tea spoons, a pair of gold buttons, and a 
pair of silver knee-buckles, £10. 14s. 8d.|| The accounts of the 
administrators, allowed from time to time, show receipts that 
increase the total valuation of the estate, until the final account of 
John Pierce of Stow, Middlesex Co., allowed 17 May 1749 (in this 
account and in an account of 13 Apr. 1749 John Pierce of Stow 
appears as the surviving administrator), brings the total up to 

*Suffolk Probate Records, vol. 34, p. 273, and New Series, vol. 20, p. 404 (File 7287). 
fCf. Wyman's Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown, pp. 612, 758. The intention of marriage 
of John Lee and Elizabeth Peirse of Charlestown was recorded in Boston 30 Oct. 1717. Susannah 
Lee, daughter of John, was undoubtedly one of his children by his first wife, Elizabeth Pierce, as 
she chose John Pierce, brother of Elizabeth, as her guardian, 19 Jan. 1749/50, when she is described 
a s a minor, aged about 16 years (vide infra). She was, therefore, born about 1733, and it may be 
conjectured that her mother died at or soon after her birth. * 

tThe Boston records give the marriage in Boston, 20 Dec. 1733, Rev. William Welsteed officiat- 
ing, of John Lee and Mary Flynt, and this is probably the second marriage of the John Lee of this 
addendum. In Wyman, ib., p. 612, John Lee is said to have married (2) 5 Oct. 1725 Esther Nichols, 
who was called "an aged woman" 14 Feb. 1740 and died 1 Sept. 1765; but it is evident that the 
John Lee who married Elizabeth Pierce and who left a widow named Mary in 1738 or 1738/9 could 
not have been the John Lee who, according to Wyman, married (2) Esther Nichols. A John Lee 
"of Freetown" married in Boston, 3 May 1722, Sam. Checkley, Esq., J. P., officiating, Mary 
Mather of Roxbury, but it is unlikely that he was the John Lee of this addendum.

£6145. 14s. 10d.* On 21 Mar. 1740 [? 1740/1] a list of debts owing 
from the estate, amounting to £842. 17s. 7d., had been exhibited,f 
and the final account showed that there had been expended by the 
administrators a total of £3454. 12s. lOd. This account was approved 
by the children of the deceased, viz., Tho B . Hodson, Joseph Lee, 
Mary Hodson, and Eliz a : Lee, and on the same date, 17 May 1749, 
John Pierce, "now" of Stow, yeoman, the surviving administrator, 
received his discharge, in which appeared the names of Thomas 
Hodgson, carter, and Mary his wife, Joseph Lee, sailmaker, and 
Elizabeth Lee, spinster, all of Boston, said Mary, Joseph, and 
Elizabeth being three of the children and heirs of John Lee, deceased, t 

On 2 May 1750 the Court issued a warrant for the division of the 
real estate of John Lee, late of Boston, limeburner, deceased, and 
ordered that a one-fourth part should go to Joseph Lee, the only 
surviving son of the deceased (his eldest son, John, being deceased 
since his father without leaving issue), one-fourth to Elizabeth Lee, 
daughter of the deceased, one-fourth to Mary Hudson, daughter of 
the deceased, wife of Thomas Hudson of Boston, carter, and one- 
fourth to Susannah Lee, daughter of the deceased. This division 
was made on 3 May 1750, and was allowed by the Court on 29 June 
1751. § 

In the two accounts presented by John Pierce as surviving admin- 
istrator of the estate of John Lee, the deceased is called Mr. John 
Lee. In the early papers relating to his estate his occupation is 
given as mason, in the later papers as limeburner.

[brother-in-law of the deceased minor] of Boston, mariner, 1 1 and the

administrator 6 June 1755, amounted to £82. Is. lOd. It included

half of a dwelling house and land at the westerly part of Boston,

and on 12 July 1755 the Court appointed commissioners to receive 
and examine the claims of her creditors.** The report of these 
commissioners, dated 15 Jan. 1756, showed that the estate of 
Susannah Lee owed £89. 18s. lOd. to the estate of John Pierce, 
deceased, and £27. lis. 3d. to the estate of Samuel Avis, deceased, 
a total indebtedness of £117. 10s. lid. [sic]. tt The account of John 
Trueman, administrator, dated 20 Jan. 1756 and allowed 23 Jan. 
1756, showed property amounting to £59. 8s. 6d. and expenses of 
£16. 6s. l^d.; and thereupon, on 24 Jan. 1756, it appearing that 
after the subduction of funeral charges, etc., only £43. 2s. 5^d. 
remained for the estate of Susannah Lee, and that the estate owed 
£117. 10s. Id., the Court ordered John Trueman, the administrator, 
to pay the creditors of the estate on their claims at the rate of 7s. 
4d. on the pound. J J 

Children by second wife: 

vi. Sarah, b. in Boston 31 Aug. 1737; d. certainly before 2 May 1750 and 
probably before 21 Mar. 1740 [? 1740/1], for the account of the two

tioned date, shows a payment of £3. 9s. for a pall, etc., for the 
deceased child's funeral, and a payment of £5. 13s. for the expenses 
of the deceased widow's funeral

jjohn Pierce of Stow, yeoman (formerly described as of Boston, house wright) , was baptized 
4 Aug. 1698, the son of John and Elizabeth (Mudge) of Charlestown and brother of John Lee's 

first wife, and died 14 Feb. 1755, in his 58th year. He married Susanna . The will of John 

Pierce of Stow was dated 26 Apr. 1753 and proved 31 Mar. 1755. Cf. Wyman's Genealogies and 
Estates of Charlestown,. pp. 759, 631, and Vital Records of Stow, p. 254. The fact that John 
Pierce was chosen by Susannah Lee as her guardian and that she was boarded at his house makes 
it extremely probable that she was a daughter of John Lee by his first wife and therefore a niece 
of John Pierce.

Contributed by Mrs. Frank Elmer Perkins of Abington, Mass. 

For a long time it has been known that Rev. William Perkins, 
who came to New England in the William and Francis in 1632 and 
finally settled at Topsfield, Mass., was born in England 25 Aug. 
1607, and that he was a son of William Perkins of London, merchant 
tailor, by his first wife, Katherine, and a grandson of George Perkins 
of Abbots Salford, co. Warwick, yeoman, and his wife Katherine.* 
The following records make it possible to trace back the ancestry 
of Rev. William Perkins for two generations beyond his paternal 
grandfather, and supply much additional information about the 
family.

[From the foregoing records and from other sources referred to 
below the following pedigree, showing the English ancestry of Rev.

ment that her son, Edward Perkins, the second of her children by William Perkins, was his mother's 
sixth child (Historical Collections of the Topsfield Historical Society, vol. 18, p. 2, supra, p. 229). 

•jThe third marriage of William Perkins is given in Sharp's History of Ufton Court, p. 253, 
where it is also stated that on "January 20, 1671, bis son William, who was then residing in Tops-

widow, dwelling at the Three Cocks, upon Ludgate Hill, near to the west end of St. Paul's Church,

Tucker-Darell 
Contributed by Rufus Stickney Tucker, Ph.D., of Cambridge, Mais. 

In the "Genealogy of the Tucker Family," compiled by the late 
Ephraim Tucker of Worcester, Mass., and published in 1895, a book 
that is almost entirely devoted to Robert Tucker of Weymouth and 
Milton, Mass., and his descendants, it is maintained that John 
Tucker, who was at Watertown, Mass., in 1636 and afterwards 
settled in Hingham, Mass., and Robert Tucker, who was at Wey- 
mouth in 1638 and was later of Milton, were brothers, and that they 
were identical with the John and Robert Tucker who are given in 
the Visitation of Kent of 1619-1621 as sons of George Tucker of 
Milton next Gravesend, co. Kent.J 

From the Tucker pedigree published in the Visitation of Kent, 
page 3,§ it appears that George Tucker, son and heir of William 
Tucker of Throuley [Throwleigh], co. Devon, Esq., was of Milton 

♦Since the only sons of William Perkins who are mentioned in his will are William and Edward, 
it is probable that John and Toby died s.p. before 18 Apr. 1657, the date of the will. The son 
Edward was named as executor of the will, together with his stepmother, his elder brother, William, 
having emigrated to New England twenty-five years earlier. The other three sons died young.

§ Publications of the Harleian Society, vol. 42, London, 1898. The Visitation pedigree used by 
Mr. Ephraim Tucker in preparing his book is that found in Harleian Manuscript 1106, which differs 
somewhat from the pedigree published by the Harleian Society in 1898, three years after the 
appearance of the Genealogy of the Tucker Family. The differences, however, are without impor- 
tance in proving or disproving Mr. Tucker's conjecture in regard to the English origin of John and 
Robert Tucker of Massachusetts.

[next Gravesend], co. Kent, and that George Tucker, son and heir 
of George and grandson of William, was likewise of Milton. By his 
first wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Francis Staughton of Craford 
[Crayford], co. Kent, this second George Tucker had a son George, 
aged 25 at the taking of the Visitation; and by his second wife, Mary, 
daughter of John Darrell* of Cadehill [Cale Hill, in the parish of 
Little Chart, co. Kent], Esq., he had, at the time of the Visitation, 
sons John, aged 19, Robert, aged 14, and Henry, aged 8, and daugh- 
ters Hester, Elizabeth, Mary, Ann, Sarah, and Martha. 

In his will, dated 11 Nov. 1622, an abstract of which is given 
below, George Tucker names all these daughters except Elizabeth, 
"Marie" being under twenty-one,, Ann being already married, and 
Sarah, Martha, and Hester being under nineteen. He names also, 
in addition to the four sons mentioned in the Visitation, a son Daniel, 
who was probably born after the taking of the Visitation, John 
Darell, Esq., deceased, his wife's father, and Sir Robert Darell, 
Knight, and John Darell, Esq., his wife's brothers. This will and a 
codicil of 14 Dec. 1625, attached thereto, show that George Tucker 
and his brother, Capt. Daniel Tucker, held shares in the "Summer 
Islands," i.e., the Bermudas, and that Capt. Daniel Tucker had 
recently given shares in these islands to his nephew Daniel, son of 
the testator of 1622. 

The prominence of this Tucker family in the Bermudas, in Bar- 
bados, and in Virginia and South Carolina, has long been known and 
recognized. George Tucker, the testator of 1622, and his brother 
Daniel were members of the Virginia Company; and Daniel sailed 
for Virginia in 1606, was a leading man in the Colony from 1608 to 
1613, was commissioned Governor of the Bermudas 15 Feb. 1615/16, 
and was in those islands from May 1616 to about Jan. 1618/19. He 
purchased lands in Virginia in 1621, and died at Port Royal, Bermuda, 
10 Feb. 1624/5. George Tucker, eldest son of the testator of 1622, 
went to the Bermuda Islands in the time of the Civil War in England, 
but returned to England. His will, an abstract of which is given 
below, is dated 23 Aug. 1639 and was proved in the Prerogative 
Court of Canterbury 2 May 1648. In it he describes himself as of 
Dartford, co. Kent, Gentleman, and gives to his eldest son, George, 
all his lands in the Bermuda Islands, except two shares which he 
gives to his second son, Francis, and two shares which he gives to 
his third son, Robert. George Tucker, the eldest son of this testator, 
settled in Bermuda, and by his wife Frances, daughter of Sir Henry 
St. George, Knight, Garter and Principal King of Arms, became the 
ancestor of a branch of the family of which several members held 
public positions of honor and trust or distinguished themselves in 
professional and mercantile life. Some of his descendants became 
officers in the British Army and Navy, others migrated to Barbados, 
Virginia, or South Carolina, and one of them, St. George Tucker, 
born in 1752, settled in Virginia, became a judge and a professor of 
law in William and Mary College, and was the founder of a well- 
known family in that State. Henry Tucker, half brother of George

Tucker, the testator of 1639, also settled, it is believed, in the Ber- 
mudas, and had many descendants.* 

The six wills of which abstracts are given belowf confirm certain 
parts of the Tucker pedigree found in the Visitation of Kent, 1619- 
1621, and supply much information about the genealogy and social 
standing of the Tucker family of Milton next Gravesend and of the 
ancient and eminent Darell family with which it was connected by 
marriage. They should, therefore, be of interest to the Tuckers of 
the present day in Virginia and other southern States, for the 
descendants of George Tucker, the testator of 1639, as well as those 
of his half brother Henry, may trace their ancestry back to the 
Darells of Kent, Elizabeth, wife of George Tucker and mother of 
his children, having been a daughter of Richard Sedley of Digs well, 
co. Herts, Esq., by his wife Elizabeth, who was a daughter of John 
Darell of Cale Hill, co. Kent, Esq., and therefore a sister of Mary 
Darell, second wife of George Tucker, the testator of 16224 These 
wills are also of value to descendants of New England Tuckers, 
because they disprove the English ancestry assigned in the " Gen- 
ealogy of the Tucker Family" to John Tucker of Watertown and 
Hingham and to Robert Tucker of Weymouth and Milton, Mass. 

The compiler of the " Genealogy," following the statements made 
and the records given in the "History of Milton, Mass," found that, 
according to the Visitation of Kent, 1619-1621, George Tucker of 
Milton [next Gravesend], the second George Tucker of the pedigree, 
had a son John, aged 19 at the time of the Visitation, and a son 
Robert, aged 14 at the same time. He found also that, according 
to the " History of Milton, Mass.," the parish registers of Milton 
next Gravesend record the following baptisms of children of George 
Tucker, Gentleman: John, in 1599; Elizabeth, 25 Mar. 1601; Maria 
[Mary], 24 Mar. 1602 [1602/3]; Robert, 7 June 1604 ;§ Henry, in 
1612. Now since John and Robert, two of the sons of George Tucker, 
were apparently of the right age to be the John and Robert Tucker 
who came to New England, since, moreover, according to the"" His- 
tory of Milton, Mass.," the Tucker family disappeared from the 
English Milton soon after 1637, and since, finally, Robert Tucker of 
Massachusetts was prominent among the early settlers of Milton

and Tucker pedigrees in Emmet's Memoir of John Patten Emmet, M.D., New York, 1898. 

fTwo of these wills have already appeared in print — that of George Tucker, the testator of 
1622, in The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, vol. 17, pp. 394-395, and that of his son 
George, the testator of 1639, in the same publication, vol. 39, pp. 354-355. The importance of 
these two wills in the history of the Tucker family and, especially, the reference in the will of the 
younger George to his [half] brothers John and Robert, whom the late Ephraim Tucker claimed 
as settlers of Massachusetts, warrant their reproduction in this article. The abstract of the first 
of these two wills has been adapted from the abstract printed in The Virginia Magazine, while 
that of the second will has been made directly from the recorded copy of the will in Somerset 
House, London, and has been compared with the abstract printed in The Virginia Magazine. 

JCf. the pedigree of Sedley of Digswell, published in The Visitations of Hertfordshire, p. 91 
(Publications of the Harleian Society, vol. 22). This pedigree gives children of George and Eliza- 
beth (Sedley) Tucker as follows: 1. George. 2. Francis. 3. Robert. 4. Elizabeth. It is, therefore, 
in agreement with the statements of the will of George Tucker. Cf. also the pedigree of Darrell, 
in The Visitation of Kent, 1619, p. 187. 

§In the History of Milton, Mass., and in the Genealogy this entry, under the year 1604, is given 
as follows: "Robert ye sonne of George Tucker Gent one of the Burghers at this font was baptized 
ye VII of June." The correct reading of this entry is: "Robert ye sonne of George Tucker Gent 
one of the Searchers at this port was baptized ye VII of June. " The father was, therefore, in the 
English customs service.

in that Colony, a town which might have been named in honor of 
the English home of one or more of its settlers, Mr. Tucker in the 
" Genealogy" stated that Robert Tucker of Milton next Gravesend 
was " doubtless the progenitor of the Milton [Mass.] Tuckers," and 
identified his brother John with the settler of that name in Water- 
town and Hingham. 

The wills given below, however, prove that John and Robert 
Tucker, sons of George Tucker of Milton next Gravesend, co. Kent, 
were living in England after their namesakes appear in Massachu- 
setts — John being in England in 1639, 1642, and 1644, and his 
brother Robert being there in 1639, when, according to the will of 
his half brother George, he was evidently incapable of managing his 
own affairs. Neither John nor Robert Tucker of Massachusetts is 
ever called Gentleman in the Colonial records, although the 
members of the Kentish family are regularly designated as Gentle- 
men or Esquires. The conclusion is, therefore, unavoidable, that 
the English ancestry of these two settlers of Massachusetts has yet 
to be discovered.

my other lands in Milton, Gravesend, and Denton, except one field in Milton 
called the Sconsfield and an Inn in Milton, now in the occupation of John 
Francis, known as the Crowne and an Inn in Gravesend called the White 
Heart, bought of my father-in-law, Richard Sedley, Esq., not yet conveyed 
— to him and to his heirs male, with reversion to my second son, Francis, 
my third son, Robert, and any other son born to me and my wife Elizabeth, 
in turn and to their heirs male. The Crowne is to go to my wife Elizabeth

in Bexley, Crayford, and Dartford, The Crowne, The Sconcefeild, The White 
Hart, and lands in the borough of Southwark are to go to my daughter 
Elizabeth and any other daughter I may have. I authorize my most hon- 
ored friend, Sir John Wolstenholme the Younger, Knt., and my brother- 
in-law, Mr. John Sedley, to sell any of the before-mentioned lands and 
devise these lands to them; as those in Southwark are yet in lease and much 
improveable, I would have them the last sold, but give them entire discre- 
tion in the sales. The residue of lands unsold and overplus of money are to 
go to my son George. The remainder of the manor of Milton and lands in 
Milton, Denton, and Somer Hands, if my sons die without issue, are to go 
to my brother John Tucker and his heirs, provided that my brother Robert 
Tucker be maintained like a gentleman, in decent apparel and habitation

in recompense and discharge of two small silver and gilt pots given him by

16 Somerset Street, in the City of Boston, under the rear walls of the buildings of said club. 

The Chair then presented, as the speaker of the afternoon, Samuel Eliot 
Morison, Ph.D., Lecturer on History, Harvard University, who gave a most 
entertaining lecture on The Clipper Ships of Massachusetts, illustrating his narra- 
tive with a series of beautiful lantern slides showing some of the most noted 
ships built in Massachusetts yards. 

Dr. Morison's address aroused great interest in the large number of members 
of the Society and their friends who had the privilege of listening to it, and, on 
motion of Desmond FitzGerald, it was 

Voted, That the New England Historic Genealogical Society desires to acknowledge its obliga- 
tion to Dr. Samuel Eliot Morison for his interesting and instructive lecture on The Clipper Ships 
of Massachusetts, in which he has described most graphically an absorbing phase of the maritime 
history of our country. 

Voted, That the New England Historic Genealogical Society desires to place upon record its 
appreciation of the remarkable career of Donald McKay of East Boston, the great designer and 
builder of clipper ships, which took such a prominent part in establishing the maritime supremacy 
of New England. 

No further business being presented, the Chair, at 4 P.M., declared the meet- 
ing dissolved, and the members of the Society and their guests remained for the 
usual social hour in the adjoining tea room.

CHARLES SHERBURNE PENHALLOW, A.B. 

By Charles Montraville Green, A.B., M.D., of Boston, Mass. 

Charles Sherburne Penhallow, elected a resident member of 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society 6 May 1891 and 
made a life member in 1899, was born at Portsmouth, N. H., 10 May 
1852, and died at Magnolia, Mass., 3 July 1921. 

His immigrant paternal ancestor, Samuel 1 Penhallow, was born at 
St. Mabyn, co. Cornwall, England, 2 July 1665, and was baptized 
20 August 1665, the second son of Chamond Penhallow, Gentleman, 
and his wife Ann (daughter of John Tamlyn), and grandson of 
Richard Penhallow, who is believed to have descended from John 
Penhallow of Penhallow, who was living in the fourteenth century, 
in 43 Edward III.* diamond Penhallow and Ann Tamlyn were 
married at St. Mabyn 30 May 1661, f and the husband was buried 
at Fowey, a parish and port in Cornwall, on the English Channel, 
about twenty -five miles northeast from Falmouth, 17 February 
1689/90, administration on his estate being granted, 30 April 1690, 
in the Consistorial Archidiaconal Court of Cornwall, of which the 
records are preserved at Bodmin. J 

The arms of this Penhallow family, which Samuel Penhallow was 
entitled to use, were Vert, a coney argent, and the name of Samuel 
Penhallow is found in the list of the very few early settlers of New 
England who were recognized as armigerous by the late William 
Sumner Appleton, A.M., LL.B., in his article published in the 
Register in 1891. § 

Samuel 1 Penhallow in his youth studied at Newington Green with 
Rev. Charles Morton, who emigrated to the Massachusetts Bay 
Colony in 1686, to take the church at Charlestown: with his father's 
consent Samuel accompanied him, joined the church in Charlestown 
27 December 1686, and soon after settled in Portsmouth, N. H., 
where on 1 July 1687 he married Mary Cutt, born at Portsmouth 

*Cf. Vivian's Visitations of Cornwall, pp. 360-361, and Pearce W. Penhallow's Penhallow 
Family. Penhallow in Cornwall, according to early maps, was about twenty miles southwest 
from Bodmin. St. Mabyn is a parish in Cornwall, about five miles northwest from Bodmin and 
about as far inland from the Bristol Channel.

244 Charles Sherburne Penhallovj [Oct. 

17 November 1669, died 8 February 1713, daughter of John Cutt, 
first President of the Council of New Hampshire. Her mother was 
Hannah, daughter of Dr. Comfort Starr of Boston. Samuel Pen- 
hallow married secondly, 8 September 1714, Mrs. Abigail (Atkinson) 
(Winslow) Osborn, daughter of Theodore Atkinson and widow in 

turn of Winslow and Dr. James Osborn of Boston. Samuel 

Penhallow held a number of important offices under the Provincial 
government: he was a member of the King's Provincial Council; 
Secretary, and for many years Treasurer, of the Province; Judge of 
the Superior Court in 1714, and Chief Justice from 1717 until his 
demise, 2 December 1726. He also wrote the " History of the Wars 
of New England with the Eastern Indians, " first published in 1726. 
He had thirteen children by his first wife and one son by his second 
wife. His son Benjamin was of the Harvard Class of 1723 and died 
in 1725.* 

John 2 Penhallow, born 13 January 1693, second son of Samuel and 
Mary (Cutt), became a merchant in Boston, a partner of John 
Watts, the firm trading with the West Indies, Madeira, and England. 
The partners made a settlement on Arrowsic, an island in George- 
town, in the Province of Maine, where shortly Watts died (in Novem- 
ber 1717). In 1721 John Penhallow commanded the garrison at 
Arrowsic: he married Mrs. Elizabeth (Butler) Watts, born 25 May 
1691, died 25 February 1736, daughter of Peter and Elizabeth 
(Brown) Butler and widow of his partner Watts, to whom she had 
borne two children. On account of his father's death he returned to 
Portsmouth, where he died 28 July 1735. By his wife Elizabeth he 
had three children. 

John 3 Penhallow, the second son of John and Elizabeth (Butler) 
(Watts) Penhallow, married first Sarah, daughter of Hunking and 
Elizabeth (Wibird) Wentworth of Portsmouth, by whom he had 
eleven children; and secondly Anne, who died s.p. 28 October 1808, 
daughter of Jacob and Sarah (Oliver) Wendell of Boston. He was a 
merchant in Portsmouth, and died 13 March 1809. His fourth son, 
John, graduated from Harvard College in 1777, and died in 1838. 

Hunking 4 Penhallow, born 3 November 1766, died 24 September 
1826, the sixth son and tenth child of John and Sarah (Wentworth) 
Penhallow, was a shipmaster in early life, but later became a mer- 
chant and banker in Portsmouth. He was a member at various times 
of the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Council of 
New Hampshire. He married Mrs. Harriet (Pearce) Scott, born 
28 March 1780, daughter of Capt. David and Bethiah (Ingersoll) 
Pearce of Gloucester, Mass., and widow of John Scott, to whom she 
had borne one daughter. To Hunking Penhallow she bore four sons 
and two daughters. 

Pearce Wentworth 5 Penhallow, born at Portsmouth 27 February 
1817, the -sixth and youngest child of Hunking and Harriet (Pearce) 
(Scott) Penhallow, like his father began life as a shipmaster. He 
married, 16 October 1845, Elizabeth Warner Pitts Sherburne, born 
at, Portsmouth 17 March 1823, daughter of John Nathaniel and

1922] Charles Sherburne Penhallow 245 

Eveline (Blunt) Sherburne of Portsmouth, whose immigrant Sher- 
burne ancestor came to New England in 1630 and later, with a party 
of seventy, occupied land on the Piscataqua. In the latter part of 
his life Captain Penhallow became engaged in the insurance business, 
for four years in Liverpool, England, and after 1868 in Boston, where 
he died 9 December 1885. He was elected a resident member of the 
New England Historic Genealogical Society 1 May 1878: his memoir 
appears in the Register, vol. 40, page 220 (April 1886). He com- 
municated to the Register for January 1878 (vol. 32, pages 21-35) 
extracts from the letter-book of John 2 Penhallow and a memoir of 
the Penhallow family, which were reprinted in separate form and 
in 1885 were published in a revised and enlarged edition under the 
title of "The Penhallow Family." He had four sons. 

Charles Sherburne 6 Penhallow, the subject of this memoir, the 
third son of Pearce Wentworth and Elizabeth Warner Pitts (Sher- 
burne) Penhallow, passed his early life in Portsmouth; but in 1864, 
his father's business calling him to Liverpool, England, he accom- 
panied him, and for four years attended Liverpool College. Return- 
ing to Boston in 1868, he attended William Brooks's school, and was 
admitted to Harvard College in June 1870. During his four years 
of undergraduate life he was much esteemed, by professors and 
classmates alike, for his manly character, his geniality, his keen sense 
of humor, and his warm-heartedness. Intending to enter upon a 
business life, after receiving his degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1874 
he was for two years in the banking house of Lee, Higginson & Com- 
pany in Boston, and later he was for a time associated with S. Dacre 
Bush in the cotton business. In 1879 he became the private secretary 
of J. Montgomery Sears, and after Mr. Sears's death in 1905 he was 
given charge of the large and varied interests of his estate. But 
aside from these onerous duties and other real estate interests he 
found time to serve his fellow men in many ways: he was a trustee 
and the treasurer of the Pomfret (Conn.) School for Boys from its 
incorporation in 1898; treasurer of the Massachusetts Society of 
Colonial Wars for fifteen years; vice president and trustee of the 
Faulkner Hospital in Jamaica Plain*; treasurer for several years of 
"A Republican Institution in the Town of Boston;" and from 1912 
until his death he served as secretary of his Harvard Class of 1874. 
His clubs were the Harvard and Union Clubs of Boston. 

In the New England Historic Genealogical Society Mr. Penhallow 
was appointed several times to be one of the two auditors to audit 
the Treasurer's accounts, and he performed this duty for a number 
of years up to 1917. On 1 February 1905 he was appointed Chair- 
man of the Committee on English Research, and he held this posi- 
tion, by successive annual appointments, for thirteen years, being 
relieved at his own request at a meeting of the Council, 6 March 
1918. At that meeting it was unanimously 

Voted, That the Council, in acceding to the request of Mr. Charles Sher- 
burne Penhallow to be relieved from his duties as chairman and member 
of, the Committee on English Research, desires to express to Mr. Penhallow 
its thanks for his many years of faithful service as chairman of the Com- 



246 Charles Sherburne Penhallow [Oct. 

mittee and custodian of its funds, and its regret that he now feels obliged to 
withdraw from the Committee. 

Under Mr. Penhallow's leadership the Committee on English 
Research was very successful in securing from members of the 
Society and other friends of its work money for the prosecution in 
England of researches in regard to the ancestry of early settlers in 
New England. The Council from time to time appropriated small 
sums for this purpose; but the greater part of the funds expended 
by the Committee was obtained by general or individual appeals 
for contributions, and these funds were administered carefully and 
faithfully by the Chairman of the Committee. The results of the 
research work were published quarterly in the pages of the Register. 

At the annual meeting of the Society, 5 February 1919, Mr. Pen- 
hallow was elected Councillor for the three years ending in February 
1922; but his health was such that he w r as unable to attend any 
meetings of the Council, and in a letter dated 3 September 1919 he 
tendered his resignation. The resignation was laid before the Society 
at the stated meeting of 1 October 1919: wmereupon it was 

Voted, That the Society has learned with great regret that Mr. Charles 
Sherburne Penhallow finds it impossible to remain longer as a member of 
the Council, and that it enters on its records at this time its appreciation of 
Mr. Penhallow's faithful services to the Society, especially as Chairman of 
the Committee on English Research for thirteen years (1905-1917). 

Mr. Penhallow married first, in Washington, D. C, 18 April 1881, 
Mary King Coffin, daughter of John Huntington Crane and Louise 
(Harrison) Coffin: they made their home at Jamaica Plain, Boston, 
and had a summer home at Magnolia, Mass.: their children were 

i. Charles Sherburne, 7 A.B. (Harvard, 1903), born 25 February 1882. 

ii. Helen Olcott, born 4 July 1883. 

iii. Eveline Blunt, born 16 March 1885; married 17 June 1907 Arthur 
Francis Nazro, A.B. (Harvard, 1903); children: Arthur P., born 
13 March 1908, and Thomas W., born 5 May 1912. 

iv. Pearce Wentworth, born 20 May 1888; died 3 August 1889. 

v. Louise Harrison, born 31 May 1890; died 20 March 1918. 

vi. Mary Warner, born 12 August 1891. 

vii. John Huntington Coffin, born 6 October 1894; affiliated with the 
Harvard Class of 1916; served with distinction, as sergeant and 
as second lieutenant, in the American Expeditionary Forces 
in France in the World War. 

After the death of his wife, 8 June 1902, Mr. Penhallow continued 
to live with his children at Jamaica Plain and Magnolia: on 21 July 
1910, at Beverly, Mass., he married secondly Jane Smith Porter, 
who survives him. 

On Commencement Day, 1921, Mr. Penhallow presided at the 
annual meeting of his Harvard class: ten da3-s later, 3 July, at his 
summer home in Magnolia, where he loved his garden and his trees, 
he suddenly succumbed to the affection which for several years had 
impaired his health. He had lived a very bus}' and a veiy useful 
life, he was faithful to his many and important duties: in the brief 
time accorded him after his last commencement he took pains to 
prepare the financial and statistical records of his class, w T hich he 



1922] Records of the First Church of Wells, Me. 247 

knew he alone could write. And all through his career of usefulness 
to his fellow men he maintained a gentleman's kindness and cour- 
tesy, which endeared him to all his associates. In St. John's Church 
in Jamaica Plain, of which he had long been a vestryman, the Order 
for the Burial of the Dead was read over his earthly tenement: who 
can doubt that this good and faithful servant has entered into the 
joy of his Lord?

REV. NOAH BARRELL'S RECORD OF MARRIAGES, 

1823-1874 

Communicated by George Morton Barrell of Gloucester, Mass. 

The following records have been abridged from the records kept 
by Rev. Noah 7 Barrell (Colburn, 6 Colburn, 5 William, 4 William, 3 
John, 2 George 1 of Boston, Mass.) of the marriages solemnized by 
him during the years 1823-1874. 

Noah Barrell was born at Hartford, Washington Co., N. Y., 
5 May 1794,* became a Baptist minister, and died at Geneva, 
Walworth Co., Wis., 16 Apr. 1875. Of the 253 marriages solemnized 
by him, the first 153 (in the years 1823-1848) and a later one (in 1849) 
took place in seven different counties in northern and central 
New York, viz., in Jefferson, St. Lawrence, Genesee, Cayuga, Ontario, 
Wayne, and Steuben Counties, the following 37 (in the years 1849- 
1856), except one in 1849 in Steuben Co., N. Y., were celebrated 
in three different counties (Geauga, Ashtabula, and Medina) in 
northeastern Ohio, and the remaining 63 (in the years 1857-1874), 
except one in 1869 in Lee Co., 111., were performed in Walworth 
and Racine Counties, in southeastern Wisconsin. 

In preparing these records for publication the words "Married" 
or "Marriage solemnized by me," with which most of the entries 
begin, have been omitted, dates have been given with the usual 
abbreviations, and the name "Noah Barrell," which is appended 
to almost every marriage record, has also been omitted, except where 
it is preceded or followed by a title or descriptive phrase, such as 
"Rev." or "Pastor of Baptist Church." In almost every entry the 
minister stated the amount of his fee, which has been omitted in 
the printed abridgement — in many cases only $1.00, in some cases 
$1.50, $2.00, $3.00, or other small sums, in about thirty cases $5.00, 
and in two cases $10.00. The larger fees, $5.00 and $10.00, were 
received for the most part from the later marriages, solemnized in 
Wisconsin. The word "County" of the original record has been 

*Vide Register, vol. 75, p. 77. 



1922] Rev. Noah BarrelVs Record of Marriages 263 

regularly abbreviated to "Co.," the customary abbreviations have 
been used for the names of States, and the punctuation has been 
revised.

There were two manors in Dedham, one known as Dedham Manor and the other as the Manor 
of Over Hall and Nether Hall. The mansion house of Dedham Manor, called Dedham Hall, stood 
near the parish church, but was taken down before 1836. Over Hall and Nether Hall were in remote 
times two distinct manors, but they were united at an early period and belonged to a family 
named De Dedham and later to the nunnery of Campesse or Campesey, in Suffolk. On the dis- 
solution of the religious houses King Henry VIII granted the Manor of Over Hall and Nether Hall 
to Humphrey Wingfield; in 1587 Thomas Seckford died in possession of it; his son and heir, Charles, 
succeeded him and died in 1591; and Charles Seckford was succeeded in turn by his son Thomas. 
Afterwards the manor passed to the family of Watkinson. The manor house of Over Hall stood 
in a field near the road to Langham. Nether Hall was in 1836 only a cottage, on Princely Green, 
where the court was opened. Cf. Wright's History of the County of Essex, vol. 1, pp. 454-455 
(1836).

May 1595. Complaint of Pierce Butter of Dedham, co. Essex. Whereas 
your orator, with one William Butter, his late father, deceased, did become 
bound by their obligation for £400, in a bond dated 27 August, 27 Elizabeth 
[1585], unto John Barnes als Baron of Roxwell, in the said county, for the 
use and behoof of one Thomas Butter, second son of the said William Butter, 
with the proviso that the said William Butter, his heirs or assigns, should, 
before the Feast of All Saintsf next coming after the date of the said bond, 
assign all these parcels of customary and copyhold lands and tenements 
hereinafter expressed, that is to say, four acres of meadow in Barbor's 
meade, of the yearly value of £4, three acres of meadow in the meade called 
Syx acres, worth £3 yearly, twenty acres of meadow in Nouse meadow 
and Coldmede, worth 30s., two tenements, with appurtenances, called 
Bartlette and HasselPs, worth £3, and twelve acres of wood in Frost's 
grove, worth 40s., amounting in all to £13. 10s. by the year, to the use and 
behoof of the said Thomas Butter and Elizabeth Crushe, one of the daughters 
and coheiresses of Robert Crushe, late of Roxwell, co. Essex, deceased, 
and to the heirs of these two, lawfully begotten, and in default of the same 
to the heirs and assigns of the said Thomas Butter for ever, to enter and 
have the said land, meadows, etc., for the term of seven years next after 
the marriage then to be solemnized between the said Thomas and Elizabeth 
or immediately after the decease of the said William Butter, whichever 
should happen first, as by said obligation may more at large appear, and 
whereas also the said William Butter did before the said Feast of All Saints 
convey and assign all the said premises, except it were the twelve acres of

fThe Feast of All Saints falls on 1 November. 



1922] Genealogical Research in England 291 

wood, unto the said Thomas and Elizabeth, according to the said condition, 
the which, if they were not conveyed within the compass of time limited 
for the performance and doing thereof, yet did your said orator's father 
shortly after, that is to say, before the Feast of Christmas next following, 
convey the twelve acres of wood unto the said Thomas and Elizabeth accord- 
ing to the condition, and the said Thomas Butter assented and agreed 
during all the lifetime of the said William Butter, the father, who lived 
above seven years after the intermarriage of the said Thomas and Elizabeth 
and did not treat it as a breach, and the said Thomas Butter did after the 
decease of his said father peaceably and quietly enter into the said premises, 
and the said Thomas and Elizabeth did not suffer any loss from the failure 
to convey the said twelve acres of wood before the said Feast of All Saints, 
nevertheless the said John Barnes als Baron and the said Thomas Butter 
maintain unjustifiedly and against conscience to charge your said orator 
with the penalty of the said obligation, and have lately colluded together 
for the maintenance thereof against your said orator, and have commenced 
action on his bond before the Queers Bench at Westminster against your 
said orator, or intend to commence the same in some other of Her Majesty's 
courts, for the recovery of £400 against the said orator, and the said Barnes 
als Baron and the said Thomas are like to prevail and get the penalty of 
the said obligation, contrary to all equity and good conscience, unless your 
Lordship's most favorable aid be herein speedily extended to the preventing 
thereof; wherefore your poor orator prays that the Queen's Majesty's most 
gracious writ of subpoena may issue to John Barnes als Baron and Thomas 
Butter, commanding them to appear before your Lordship, etc. 

The Answer of Thomas Butter, dated 5 January 1595 [1595/6], states 
that there was such a bond, dated 27 August 37 [sic] Elizabeth, that no 
proper feoffment was made, that before the twelve acres of wood were 
conveyed great waste was done, and that his father had promised to make 
it good but had neglected to do so, and by his will had devised and bequeathed 
the said lands to Richard Butter, brother of this defendant, and Ann Morfew, 
his sister. 

The Answer of Barnes als Baron states substantially the same as the 
answer of Thomas Butter, and adds that he would never have consented 
to the marriage without the said bond. 

The Replication of Pearce Butter states that the answers are untrue, 
all or the most part of the lands in question having been surrendered according 
to the true meaning of the bond, and offers to make restitution for any wood 
cut. (Chancery Proceedings, Elizabeth, B. b. 17/47.) 

24 July 1601. The Petition of William Butter, executor of the last 
will and testament of Pierce Butter of Colchester [co. Essex], his father, 
represents that his father, about 40 Elizabeth [1597-8], made his will, and 
made the orator and Henry Sherman the Elder his executors, and died 
about this time in Colchester. Henry Sherman hath refused to act. The 
said Pierce Butter in his lifetime, i. e., on 19 November, 34 Elizabeth [1591], 
became bound to William Tomson for £600, to pay £40j0 to the children 
of John Thompson, deceased, i. e., to John Tompson and William Tomson, 
two of the sons of said John Tompson, deceased, to each of them £100, 
and to Ann, Elizabeth, Thomazin, and Sara Tomson £50 at a certain day 
already past. The £50 due to Thomazin was paid on the day appointed, 
but the £50 due to Ann was not so paid, because for one and a half years 
after said Pierce's death your orator could not obtain a sight of the will 
or learn whether he was executor or whether the said Pierce had made the 
said indenture, which was concealed from your orator by the sinister practice 
of William and Ann Tomson, in order to obtain the forfeit. When he learned 

vol. lxxvi. 19 



292 Genealogical Research in England [Oct. 

thereof, your orator offered the £50 to William and Ann, and is willing and 
ready to pay it, but they refused and still refuse to receive it, and have 
confederated to obtain the forfeit, and your orator prays for a writ of sub- 
poena against William and Ann Tomson. 

The Answer of William Tomson states that, long before Pierce Butter 
made the recognizance, John Tomson by his will gave the said sums to 
his children, and made the defendant and Tomazin, his wife, the executors 
of his will, and, the defendant refusing to act, said Tomazin became the 
sole executor, and did intermarry with the said Pierce Butter, she having, 
as the defendant thinketh he shall prove, goods to the value of £1000 in 
the hands of the said Pierce Butter, and he gave a bond to pay the said 
legacies given by the said will to the children of the said John Tomson, 
his brother, and Pierce Butter made his will and made the orator and Henry 
Sherman his executors, and died about two years ago, and shortly after his 
death the said Sherman desired to take order with the defendants about 
their portions, as he knew their father had a great care of it as a matter 
of great weight, but the complainant would not agree, and so trifled with 
the said Sherman that he has refused to join as coexecutor. The complainant 
for a year and a half last past has not tendered the £50, although demanded 
and the complainant has often promised to pay. The defendant is suing 
on the recognizance at the request of the said Ann and her friends. More- 
over, the will was not concealed from the complainant from any sinister 
purpose, and after a sight thereof he knew that he was executor. 27 June 
1601. (Chancery Proceedings, Elizabeth, B. 27/51.) 

From the foregoing records the following pedigree has been 
prepared. 

1. Thomas Butter, of Dedham, co. Essex, clothier, the testator 
of 1555, born probably about 1500, died between 20 Aug. and 15 Oct. 
1555. He apparently married twice, the name of his first wife being 

unknown and his second wife being Marion , who was living 

20 Aug. 1555. 

He first appears at Dedham as a juror at a manor court held on 

the Monday after St. Martin the Bishop, 21 Henry VIII [1529], 

and on the Monday in the Feast of St. Edmund, King and Martyr, 

23 Henry VIII [1531], he acquired three roods of meadow in Chalde- 

wall, east of the river [the St our]. He was often a juror in the manor 

courts at Dedham, and the court rolls show that he came to possess 

a good estate in copy lands. On 16 July, 29 Henry VIII [1537], at 

the manor court of Over and Nether Hall, Dedham, he is called a 

" native." His will shows that he was a prosperous clothier of Dedham 

at the time when the cloth trade of that town was at its height. 

Henry Sherman was one of the executors named in his will and was 

probably a relative or connection by marriage of Thomas Butter.* 

Children, probably by first wife (order of births uncertain) : 

2. i. William, b. perhaps about 1521. 

ii. A daughter, b. perhaps about 1523; d. before 20 Aug. 1555; m. 

Wulman, who was living 20 Aug. 1555. Two children, living and 

under twenty years of age 20 Aug. 1555. 
iii. John, b. perhaps about 1525; living 12 Oct., 21 Elizabeth [1579]. 

*Henry Sherman was ancestor of the well-known Sherman family of Watertown, Mass., about 
whose English ancestry an4 connections much information is given in various volumes of the 
Register. 



1922] Genealogical Research in England 293 

Children: 1. John, living and of age 12 Oct. 1579. Probably other 
children, daughters (see will of Thomas Butter, 1555). 

iv. Alice, b. perhaps about 1527; living 3 and 4 Philip and Mary [1556-7]; 
m. before 20 Aug. 1555 Christopher Percyvall, who was living 
3 and 4 Philip and Mary [1556-7]. Children. 1. John, living and 
under twenty years of age 20 Aug. 1555. Probably others. 

v. Agnes, b. perhaps about 1529; living 20 Aug. 1555; m. before that 
date Rolfe. 

vi. Alice, "younger daughter," b. perhaps about 1530; living unm. 
20 Aug. 1555. 

vii. Sibell, b. perhaps about 1531; living unm. 20 Aug. 1555. 

viii. Margaret, b. perhaps about 1532; living unm. 20 Aug. 1555. 

Children, probably by second wife: 

? Mary' f unm - an( l una "er twenty-three years of age 20 Aug. 1555. 

xi. Grace, unm. and under twenty-three years of age 20 Aug. 1555; 

bur. at Dedham 4 Dec. 1567. 
xii. Ann, unm. and under twenty-three years of age 20 Aug. 1555. 
xiii. A child, unborn on 20 Aug. 1555, when Thomas Butter made his will. 

2. William Butter (Thomas), of Dedham, co. Essex, clothier, the 
testator of 1593, born perhaps about 1521, was buried at Dedham 

8 Nov. 1594. He married first Ann , who was buried at 

Dedham 22 Aug. 1563; and secondly, before 1567, Marion 

( ) Willes, widow of Willes,* by whom she had 

a son, Thomas, who was living 6 Oct. 1606, when she made 
him executor of her nuncupative will, which was proved 10 
Nov. 1606-f Ann, the first wife of William Butter, may have 
been related to the Sherman family of Dedham, as Pierce 
Butter, her son, in his will made in Aug. 1599, mentions "my 
cousin Harry Sherman" and makes "my loving friend, Henrye 
Sherman the Elder," one of his executors. 

William Butter was a juror at the manor court held 7 Oct., 
2 and 3 Philip and Mary [1555], and at many subsequent manor 
courts, and was elected constable at a court held 9 Nov. 1559. 
Like his father, he appears to have been a wealthy and pros- 
perous clothier and to have acquired a considerable estate in 
copy lands. % 

Children by first wife: 

3. i. Pierce, b. probably about 1550. 

ii. Thomas, b. probably about 1553; living 3 Oct. 1597, but apparently 
dead in Aug. 1599, when his brother Pierce made his will; m. between 
27 Aug. and 30 Sept. 1585 Elizabeth Crushe, dau. and coheiress 
of Robert Crushe, late of Roxwell, co. Essex, deceased. He was 
one of the defendants in the suit in Chancery brought by his brother, 
Pierce Butter, in May 1595. Children: 1. William, living 30 May 
1593, when he is mentioned in his grandfather's will; d. before 
— Aug. 1599. 2. Samuel, living in Aug. 1599, when he is mentioned 
in the will of his uncle, Pierce Butter. 3. Daniel, bapt. at Dedham 
1 June 1591; d. before — Aug. 1599. 4. Elizabeth, bapt. at Dedham

19 June 1597; bur. there 11 Sept. 1598. Other daughters, some of 
them probably b. before Elizabeth. 

iii. Richard, b. probably about 1555; living in Aug. 1599, when he is 
mentioned in the will of his brother Pierce. William and John 
Butter, beneficiaries in the will of John Butter (3, v) of Thorington, 
co. Essex, dated 26 Jan. 1624/5, who calls them his uncle's sons, 
were probably sons of this Richard Butter. 

iv. Edward, b. probably about 1560; bur. at Dedham 11 Dec. 1568. 

v. Alice, bapt. at Dedham 8 Nov. 1562; living 16 Apr. 1645, when she 
is mentioned in the will of her niece, Anne (Butter) Coggeshall 

(3, iv); m. before 30 May 1593 [probably John] Morfew, 

living 30 May 1593. They had a son and possibly other children. 

Child by second wife: 

vi. Frances, bapt. at Dedham 24 Feb. 1566/7; probably d. before 30 
May 1593. 

3. Pierce Butter (William. Thomas), of Dedham and Colchester, 
co. Essex, clothier, the testator of 1599, born about 1550, died 
at Colchester between 27 Aug. and 3 Oct. 1599. He married 
first, at Dedham, 21 Feb. 1574/5, Edith Skynner,* who was 

buried at Dedham 22 Apr. 1576; secondly ; and thirdly, 

probably about 19 Nov., 34 Elizabeth [1591], and certainly 

before 4 Aug., 34 Elizabeth [1592], Thomasine ( ) 

Tomson, who died before — Aug. 1599, widow of John Tomson, 
by whom she had children, John, William, Ann, Elizabeth, 
Thomazin, and Sara, all of whom were living — Aug. 1599, 
when their stepfather, Pierce Butter, mentions them in his 
will, and are named also in the Chancery suit of 24 July 1601. 

Pierce Butter first appears on the manor court roll on 30 
Mar., 15 Elizabeth [1573], and was often a juror in the manor 
court, his last appearance in that capacity being on 6 June, 
41 Elizabeth [1599]. In the last years of his life he resided in 
Colchester, in the parish of St. James. His will disposes of a 
large estate, including considerable plate, and shows that he 
was a clothier of the most prosperous type. 

Children by second wife: 

i. William, bapt. at Dedham 21 July 1579; bur. there 11 July 1612; 

m. at Dedham, 20 Dec. 1610, Judyth Upcher. He was the plaintiff 

in the Chancery suit of 24 July 1601 against William Tomson and 

his niece, Ann Tomson. Child: 1. Judith, living unm. 26 Jan. 

1624/5, when she is mentioned in the will of her uncle, John Butter 

of Thorington, co. Essex, 
ii. Pierce, bapt. at Dedham 17 Oct. 1581; living 26 Jan. 1624/5, when 

he is mentioned in the will of his brother, John Butter of Thorington, 

co. Essex. 
iii. Daniel, of Dedham, clothier, the testator of 1608/9, bapt. at Dedham 

20 Nov. 1582; d. s.p. between 14 Mar. 1608/9 and 10 Nov. 1609. 
iv. Anne, the testatrix of 1645, b. probably about 1583; d. between 

16 Apr. 1645 and 10 Nov. 1648; m. about 1600 John Coggeshall 
the Younger of Halstead, co. Essex, gentleman, b. 24 July and 
bapt. at Halstead 29 July 1576, bur. there 4 Aug. 1615. In her will, 

*There seems to have been some other connection between the Butter family and the Skinner 
family besides the marriage of Pierce Butter and Edith Skynner. Elizabeth Skinner, daughter 
of Goodwife Butter, was buried at Dedham 19 July 1586, and Marion Butter, widow, in her 
nuncupative will declared 6 Oct. 1606, leaves wearing apparel and pewter to Elizabeth and 

Mary Skinner. Marion Butter may have been married twice, to Skinner and to 

Willes, before her marriage to William Butter; and Pierce Butter may have married as his first 
wife his stepmother's daughter. — Editob.

Origin of the De Greys of Oxfordshire 

In July and October, 1920, and January and April, 1921, the 
Committee on English Research communicated to the Register 
(vol. 74, pages 231-237, 267-283, and vol. 75, pages 57-63, 129-142), 
under the heading "Gifford-Sargent," records collected and a 
pedigree prepared by the writer of this article, showing the descent 
of William Sargent, an early settler of Maiden, Mass., through his 
grandmother, Margaret (Gifford) Sargent, from Osberne (or Osbert) 
Giffard, who came into England with the Conqueror, received 
extensive grants of land in co. Gloucester, and died about 1086. One 
of the Giffard ancestors of William Sargent was Osbert Giffard 
(Register, vol. 75, pages 62-63), who died about 1237, fourth in 
descent from the Osberne of the Conquest. He married Isabel 
de Bokland or Bocland, daughter of Alan and Alice (Murdac) de 
Bokland and granddaughter of Ralph and Eva (de Grey) Murdac. 
It is the purpose of this article to set forth the descent of Eva (de 
Grey) Murdac, remote ancestress of William Sargent, from Anschetil 
de Grey, another contemporary of the Conqueror, and a Domesday 
tenant holding lands in Oxfordshire and Berkshire. The article does 
not attempt to clear up the relationship of all the various members 
of the De Grey family who appeared in Oxfordshire in the century 
immediately succeeding the Conquest, but it does purport to show 
one line of descent from Anschetil de Grey, the Domesday tenant, 
down to the reign of Henry III. 

In the Norfolk Antiquarian Miscellany, vol. 3, page 1, there is an 
article on the Greys of Merton in Norfolk and of Cavendish in 
Suffolk. It includes a brief discussion of the Oxfordshire Greys and 
the well-known pedigree of the family compiled by the Somerset 
Glover, the most notorious of the Elizabethan pedigree-forgers. 
The most valuable thing in this article, so far as the Oxfordshire 
Greys are concerned, is the note upon their pedigree by Mr. Walter 
Rye, who in a few words shows that the immediate descendants of 
the Domesday tenant are in hopeless confusion. Since the year

[Oct. 



1887, however, when this article was printed, the Oxford Historical 
Society has published the Eynsham Cartulary, an invaluable 
contribution to the early history and genealogy of that county, 
which, taken in conjunction with the Osney Cartulary and Abingdon 
Chronicle, makes it possible to deduce some further facts regarding 
the immediate family of Anschetil de Grey. 

At the time of the Conquest the De Greys were no mere 
adventurers, but already occupied a place of some note among the 
families of the Bassin, and had been established for almost a hundred 
years at Grai and Douneville in the immediate vicinity of Caen. 
In the "Norman People" there is a pedigree of these early seigneurs 
of Grai, which is substantially the same as that given by the Duchess 
of Cleveland in her Battle Abbey Roll, although she differs from it 
as to the father of Anschetil. The pedigree is as follows: 

Arnulph, Sieur de Grai, about 970. 

Nigel de Grai, 

I witnessed a charter about 1020 
(Lobineau, Hist. Brit., ii, p. 171).

As to this descent of Anschetil, the writer of this article is unable 
to give any opinion, as he has made no search in the Norman records; 
but it is clear that Anschetil belonged to the family of the Lords of 
Grai, near Caen, and was in no way connected with the Croy family, 
as Glover absurdly states. 

In Glover's pedigree is found the following descent:

Glover then proceeds to deduce the various noble houses of the 
Greys from Henry, whom he gives as son of the second Anschetil. 
This pedigree is a cunning mixture of fact and impudent fiction. 
It is clear that Glover had seen the Cartularies of Eynsham and 
Abingdon, from which he took part of the pedigree, and then he 
deliberately added John, Bishop of Norwich, and Henry de Grey 
as the sons of the younger Anschetil, without the slightest authority 
therefor. 

Now what are the facts? Anschetil, the Domesday tenant of 
Oxfordshire and Berkshire, was the undoubted ancestor of the 
De Greys in England, and his Domesday holdings were as follows: 

In Oxfordshire Anschetil held of the Count [William Fitz Osbern] Redre- 
feld [Rotherfield], containing five hides; in Burton he held two hides, in 
Redreford three hides, in Nevtone four hides. He also held Widelie, where 
there were two hides; in Bristelmestone he held six hides, and in Cornewell 
he held two hides. In Cestitone [Chesterton] he held three hides of the fee 
of Bayeux. 

In Berkshire he held lands of the Abbey of Abingdon as follows : In Come- 
nore [Cumnor] he held five hides of the abbot. These Norman held in King 
Edward's time; it was one manor called Seuacorde [Seacourt]. In Bertune 
[Barton] Anschetil and Gilbert held ten hides of the abbot. In Mercheham 
he held one hide. In Benham he held two hides of Humfrey vis de Lew. 

The Abingdon Chronicle shows that he also held land in Spars- 
holt, which the Abbey claimed by gift of Goderic Cild, one of its 
members. When Anschetil incurred the displeasure of William Rufus, 
the King seized it, and it was restored to the Abbey by Henrj' I in 
1105. (Round's Domesday in Berkshire, Victoria County Histories.) 

Of the above property, the manors and hides that are of interest 
in this article are Rotherfield, Widelie, Cornewell, and Chesterton, 
as it is their subsequent reappearance that makes it possible to glean 
some information regarding the family. 

The Abingdon Chronicle (vol. 2, page 17) states that in 2 William II 
[1088-9] the men of Seucurda broke the watercourse at Botley and 
that at that time Anschillus ruled. The Chronicle further relates 
that, in the time of William Rufus, Anskillus, "one of the great men 
of the time," who held Sevecurda and Sparsholt, part of Bayworth, 
and a hide at Mcrcham, incurred the King's anger and was impris- 
oned by him. He died in a few days, his wife was excluded from his 
house, and his son -William was deprived of his inheritance. It is 
also stated that Anskillus had held Sparsholt of the Abbot Rainald 
by service of one knight. The king gave Sparsholt to Thurstinus, 
his steward, etc. (lb., vol. 2, pages 36, 125.) It is, therefore, clear 
that Anschetil died between 1088-9 and 1100, and that he had a 
son, William. 

On 7 Mar. 1104 Abbot Faritius of Abingdon and Anskitillus, his 
man, of Tadmerton executed a deed, whereby Anskitillus and his 
son Robert surrendered lands in Tadmerton in exchange for lands 
in Chesterton. This exchange was confirmed by Henry, Earl of 
Warwick, who died 20 June 1123, and Anskitillus was a witness of 
the confirmation; while in 8 Henry I (1107-8) Robert, son of An- 
skitillus, was witness of a charter of Robert, Earl of Mellent. As 



298 Genealogical Research in England [Oct. 

Chesterton was held by the original Anskitillus, Anschetil of the 
charter of 1104 was probably a son of the Domesday tenant. 

On Whitsunday [13 May], 1106, Richard, Earl of Chester, granted 
lands in Woodmundslea to the Abbot of Abingdon, and among the 
witnesses was William Fitz Anskitillus. Richard was seven years 
old on 27 July 1101, when his father Hugh died, so that, if this grant 
is genuine, he was still a minor when it was made. And in an undated 
agreement of the reign of Henry I between Abbot Vincent and the 
King's steward, Simon, " Anskitillus, the Sheriff/' appears as a witness. 
These items would seem to refer to the two sons of the Domesday 
tenant. 

We now turn to the Eynsham Cartulary, to the confirmation by 
King Henry I to the monks of all their lands, dated 25 Dec. 1109 
110 Henry I]. In it we find the following sentence: 

"Ricardus de Graio misit unum filium suum in eodem monasterio et cum 
eo decimam de Daerneford et de Wideli et de Cornewella. Omnium scilicet 
illorumque ad easdem Villas pertinent, tam de annona quam de lana et 
caseis et de ceteris pecunis." 

Anschetil de Grai and his brother William witnessed a charter of 
Robert de Oily II, made about 1130-1142. Anschetil de Grey gave 
the Eynsham monks a meadow in Stanlak called Langehurst and 
one called Wdefordhurst, and his son and heir, John, consented. 
The charter was witnessed by Manasser Arsic, Hugo de Chesney, 
Nigel the deacon, William the clerk, and Aubrey Arsic. This charter 
was made before the death of Hugo de Chesney, which happened 
before 1166, and William, the clerk, witnessed a charter about 1160, 
so that this charter is dated about 1150 to 1160. John de Grey 
confirmed this gift, and added to it the meadow called Chettuchesham 
sometime before 1192, when Ralph Murdac held Stanlak. 

Ralph Murdac, who married Eva de Grey, about 1192 gave the 
monks his rights in Clifton Mill and his mill of Broughton, and 
provided that, if he and his heirs could not warrant it and his wife 
Eva and he had issue, then they should have lands from his manors 
of Rotherfield or Stanlac. 

Ralph Murdac died between 1194 and 1198 (Eynsham Cartulary, 
vol. 1, page 420), and in the latter year his widow Eva had remarried 
Andrew de Beauchamp. At her death, about 1242, Eva held two 
carucates and £17. 17s. 3d. in rents and customs in Stanlac, and 
in Derneford she held three carucates of land, etc., of Baldwin, 
sometime Earl of Devon. At her death in 31 Henry III [1246-7] 
Alice Murdac, her daughter, held 60s. rent in Derneford, which 
passed to her grandson and heir, Osbert Gifford. 

Stephen de Ponsold and Alice his wife, daughter of Thomas de 
Grey, gave the monks of Eynsham the church of Cornewell (1151- 
1173), and in the autumn of 1201 the Abbot of Eynsham quitclaimed 
this church to Alice de Grey. (Abb. Plac, page 32.) 

Turning now to the Osney Cartulary, it is found that William, 
brother of Ascetillus, and William de Chesney witnessed a confirma- 
tion of Robert de Oyley III, son of Henry de Oyley I. As Henry 
de Oyley died in the autumn of 1163, this confirmation is after this 



1922] Genealogical Research in England 299 

date, and as William de Chesney died before 1170, this charter would 
seem to have been made between 1163 and 1170. 

Hawysia de Grey, with the consent of her son, Robert, granted to 
Osney Abbey the church of Cornewell, for the soul of her brother, 
John de Grey, late Bishop of Norwich. This grant was witnessed 
by Walter de Grey, Bishop of Worcester, her son. John, Bishop of 
Norwich, died in 1214, and Walter de Grey was made Bishop of 
Worcester on 20 Jan. 1214/15 and Archbishop of York on 18 June 
1215. Therefore this charter must have been given between 18 Jan. 
1214/15 and 18 June 1215. 

There is one more entry of interest, that in the Liber Niger, which 
gives Robert de Grey as holding Rother field. 

Turning now to an analysis of the above evidence, it seems clear 
that Anschetil, the Domesday tenant, had a son William, who was 
living on 13 May 1106. He also seems to have had a son Anschetil, 
who was holding lands in Tadmeston on 7 Mar. 1104 and who had a 
son Robert, apparently of age at this date. Now Anschetil of the 
Domesday must have had still another son, Richard, who prior to 
25 Dec. 1109 granted lands in Widelie, Cornewell, and Derneford 
to the Eynsham monks, because Widelie and Cornewell were both 
held by Anschetil in 1086. This Richard must in turn have been the 
father of the Anschetil de Grey who gave lands in Stanlac to the 
monks, because we find his granddaughter, Eva de Grey, the wife 
of Ralph Murdac, holding lands in Derneford which passed to her 
daughter Alice Murdac, the grandmother of Osbert Giffard. So far 
as this particular line of the Greys is concerned, the pedigree seems 
fairly well proven, as the Derneford lands held by Richard can be 
traced down through the heiress of this branch of the family to the 
Murdacs and eventually to the Giffards. 

The difficulties arise when it comes to tracing the descent of 
Cornewell and Rotherfield. It seems reasonable to suppose that 
Richard de Grey also held Rotherfield, because we find that Ralph 
Murdac, who married his great-granddaughter, was holding in 
Rotherfield jure uxoris, but it does not appear to have passed to his 
heirs. The Robert de Grey who held it in the Liber Niger was prob- 
ably a son of Richard and died without issue, whereupon the manor 
passed to his relatives. Thomas de Grey was probably another son 
of Richard, who, as appears from the Eynsham charter of 1109, was 
holding Cornewell at this date, because Alice de Ponsold, daughter 
of Thomas, was the heiress of Cornewell. This Alice received Corne- 
well back in 1202, and in 1215 Hawise de Grey, sister of John, Bishop 
of Norwich, and mother of Archbishop Walter, granted it away. 
This Hawise was surely the mother of Walter the Archbishop. 
Accordingly the following pedigree of the family is herewith presented, 
to bring out the above points.

THE EXPANSION OF NEW ENGLAND 
By Ruftjs Stickney Tucker, Ph.D., of Cambridge, Ma3s. 

The prominence of natives of New England in the early history of 
our country has brought it about as a natural reaction that con- 
temporary observers, both natives of these States and outsiders, have 
developed a tendency to belittle the importance of New Englanders 
at the present time. Much has been said of the decline in enterprise 
and sturdiness of character among the descendants of the Puritans, 
and the lessening number of inhabitants of New England who can 
claim Colonial ancestry is adduced as evidence of racial decay, 
physical or moral. Such observations leave out of account the fact 
that the race of New Englanders did not cease pioneering when they 
had settled the six northeastern States, but have continued to 
pioneer to the present day, with the result that they form a large and 
active element in nearly every State of the Union, except those in 
which negro slavery formerly prevailed. When the free land of 
New England was occupied and the towns sufficiently supplied with 
professional men and skilled laborers, the intelligent Yankee would 
not consent to enter unskilled employment that offered no hope for 
advancement. That work he left for the incoming hordes of Euro- 
peans and French Canadians, preferring to hew out a new home for 
himself in the wilderness, where the life might be harder but the 
chances of attaining a comfortable estate and a respectable place in 
society were much greater. Another motive for emigration was the 
opening-up of fertile lands in the West by means of canals and rail- 
roads, which made it possible to market agricultural products at 
such low prices that the rocky hillsides of New England could not 
compete. Very likely the substitution of manufactures for mercan- 
tile shipping, as a result of the Nation's .tariff policy, worked to the 
same end, for seafaring men do not enjoy factory air. In any case, 



302 The Expansion of New England [Oct. 

the decennial censuses have shown that the proportion of persons 
of New England birth residing in other States has been very large, 
declining only from about one-sixth in 1850 to about one-ninth in 
1910. 

It is not to be taken for granted that only those who lacked ambi- 
tion remained at home. If a man had a high degree of skill in some 
trade or profession, or if he possessed a valuable farm or business, 
he would have no reason to migrate. But so many did migrate 
that at the present time it is a fact that there are more descendants 
of New England colonists outside of New England than there are 
still residing in the land of their ancestors. 

It is unfortunate that exact figures on this point are impossible 
to obtain. The United States census contains no information con- 
cerning the birthplaces of residents until 1850, and none concerning 
their parentage until 1870. Moreover, even in the case of a man 
recorded as being born in New England of native parents, it is not 
certain that his grandparents were not foreigners. Of course the 
nationality of a man's grandparents is a very poor criterion of his 
value as an American citizen; but, as this is an attempt to ascertain 
the growth in numbers of the descendants of Colonial New Eng- 
enders, such persons must be excluded, and on account of the nature 
of the statistical data they are excluded even if some of their grand- 
parents were of the old stock. If, however, a man's ancestors were 
some from New England and some from other parts of the United 
States, he is not wholly excluded from these statistics, but is treated 
as a fraction of a man, according to the proportion of New England 
blood in him. As a result the following figures do not show the 
number of Americans who have some New England ancestors, but 
only a hypothetical number of pure-blooded descendants. On the 
basis of the census figures, by making a few reasonable assumptions, 
an estimate will be made showing first how many of the natives of 
New England in 1910 were descended from native whites residing 
there in 1850, then how many residents of other States in 1910 were 
descended from whites who were born in New England and were 
living either in New England or in the State under consideration in 
1850, next how many of these native whites in 1850 were of Colonial 
New England ancestry, and finally how many others were descended 
from New England colonists. 

In the United States in 1910 there were 2,777,111 native whites 
of native parentage who were born in New England. Their parents 
were the native whites recorded in the censuses from 1850 to 1890, 
but it is reasonable to suppose that the native whites recorded in 
1880 best represent them. These can be divided into native whites 
of native parents and native whites of foreign parents (except in 
Maine, where it is necessary to use the 1890 proportions); and, on 
the assumption that the members of each class had the same number 
of children on the average, it can be stated that of the 2,777,111 
native New Englanders just mentioned 2,123,000 had native grand- 
parents. This is probably a safe assumption, for the native whites 
of native parentage are more apt to marry than those of foreign 
parentage, as is shown by every census from 1850 to date; and, 



1922] 



The Expansion of New England 



303 



although there may be fewer children born to each marriage, it is 
believed that in New England the number surviving to maturity is 
nearly if not quite as great. The Massachusetts census of 1905 
showed that 79.1% of those with native parents had native grand- 
parents also. According to this ratio the number would be 2,194,000. 
The distribution by States of origin is as follows:

The grandparents of these persons were presumably living in New 
England at the time of the census of 1850. 

The northern and western States also have many residents who were 
born in those States but whose parents came from New England. 
The only way to estimate the number of such persons is to take the 
reported number of white natives of a State, born of native parents, 
and prorate according to the proportion of persons of New England 
birth in the total native white population of the State in 1880. This 
is done in the following table (Table II), in which the third column 
gives the estimated number of persons in each State in 1910 who were 
of New England parentage, although not of New England birth.

304 The Expansion of New England [Oct. 

There were also many persons in these States whose parents were 
likewise natives of the State concerned, but whose grandparents were 
from New England. Their number is ascertained by multiplying 
the number reported in 1910 as born in the State, of native parents, 
by the percentage of native whites who were reported in 1880 as 
born in the State, and further multiplying by the percentage of 
native whites in each State in 1880 who had native parents and 
by the percentage of free residents in 1850 who were born in New 
England. The results are given in the fourth column of Table II. 

Besides these classes, only one or two generations removed from 
New England, there are many other persons in the States between 
New England and the Mississippi whose ancestors migrated from 
New England. In New Jersey Puritans from Connecticut and Long 
Island (which was formerly a part of the Colony of Connecticut) 
were numerous as early as 1725. At the time of the Revolution 
New Englanders had settled in the Mohawk Valley and in north- 
eastern Pennsylvania. Before 1800 they had poured into western 
New York and eastern Ohio. Northeastern Ohio was considered 
part of Connecticut until 1800, and the State of Massachusetts had 
the title to all the land of western New York. Michigan was largely 
settled by men from western New York, of New England origin. 
Any attempt to state the number of descendants of these pioneers 
must be largely based on guesswork, checked to a certain extent 
by the census of 1850. A fair guess is that in 1850 the proportion 
of native Americans residing in each State who were not born in 
New England but were of New England ancestry was in New York 
one-fourth, New Jersey one-tenth, Pennsylvania one-twentieth, Ohio 
one-sixth, Michigan three-tenths, Indiana one-tenth, Illinois one- 
sixth, Wisconsin one-third, and Iowa one-eighth. The other States 
were settled so recently that nearly all their residents who were born 
in New England are enumerated as such in some one of the censuses. 
It is within the bounds of probability that 1,020,000 of the persons 
enumerated as natives of other States in 1850 were of New England 
stock. 

In 1850 there were in New England 2,395,000 whites, natives of 
the United States, of whom 2,325,000 or slightly less had been 
born in New England. There is no information in that census 
concerning their parentage, but it seems reasonable to assume that 
they were at least as largely native as the 866,000 native whites of 
native parentage living in these States and over forty years of age 
in 1890. On this assumption 94.4%, equivalent to 2,195,000 persons, 
were of the old stock. The true number of those with native par- 
ents was probably somewhat larger than this, for the native stock 
averaged some years older than the children of recent arrivals and 
was less apt to survive until 1890, and, moreover, the native stock 
was more apt to migrate to the West. 

Of course some of these persons with native parents were not of 
Colonial descent. The number, however, was certainly not great. 
We have contemporary statements to the effect that as late as 1820 
New England was the most American part of the country. Madison 
wrote in that year: "It is worth remarking that New England, which 



1922] The Expansion of New England 305 

has sent out such a continued swarm to other parts of the Union 
for a number of years, has continued at the same time, as the census 
shows, to increase in population, although it is well known that it 
has received but comparatively few emigrants from any quarter."* 
In 1853 New Hampshire was mentioned as one of the States that 
had been least affected by immigration. f Moreover, the country as 
a whole received very few immigrants between 1775 and 1830. Of 
the native whites born before 1825 and still living in 1890, the pro- 
portion of foreign parentage was 5.5% in the whole country but 
only 2.3% in New England. On the whole we are justified in assum- 
ing that the number of natives of native parentage in New England 
in 1850 who were not of Colonial ancestry was not great enough to 
be taken into account, especially as it is almost certain that 94.4% 
is too low a percentage for those natives who had native parents. 
The figures in the second column of Table II are accordingly to be 
reduced by one-twentieth, but the third and fourth columns need 
not be changed. 

Going back to the origin of those who were in New England at the 
time of the Revolution, the census of 1790 shows that 95% had English 
names and 3.5% Scotch names, with a few Irish, French, and Dutch. 
It was the belief of contemporaries that most of the immigration 
into New England took place before 1650, and that the marvellous 
growth of population between 1650 and 1800 was due almost wholly 
to the natural excess of births over deaths. Compare the words of 
Malthus on this point: "In the Northern states of America, where 
the means of subsistence have been more ample, the manners of 
the people more pure, and the checks to early marriages fewer than 
in any of the modern states of Europe, the population has been found 
to double itself, for above a century and a half successively, in less 
than each period of twenty-five years." t Washington, also, wrote 
of New England in 1796: "Their numbers are not augmented by 
foreign emigrants; yet, from their circumscribed limits, compact 
situation, and natural population, they are filling the western parts 
of the state of New York and the country on the Ohio with their 
own surplusage." § 

The following table contains a brief summary of the growth in 
numbers of the descendants of white New England colonists, wher- 
ever found, from 1640 to the present time. The figures before 1790 
are taken from the census publication entitled "A Century of Popu- 
lation Growth;" from 1790 to 1820 the census figures for New 
England are used without correction; all the others are estimates 
made as herein described.

In 1910 there were in the United States approximately 3,985,000 
" persons" of Colonial New England descent. Of these, only 2,017,000 
were in New England; this estimate ie believed to be fairly close. 
The 1,968,000 put down for other states is a minimum number, as 
will be presently explained. Of these, 640,000 were in New York, 
297,000 in Ohio, 198,000 in Pennsylvania, 159,000 in Illinois, 114,000 
in Michigan, 112,000 in California, 87,000 in Indiana, 79,000 in 
Wisconsin, 68,000 in New Jersey, 63,000 in Minnesota, and 57,000 
in Iowa, the rest being scattered. 

These figures do not include, except in 1850, the important class 
of persons whose ancestors did not go directly from New England 
to the State where the descendant resided at the time of the census. 
For example, a man in Michigan whose parents were born in New 
York, but whose grandparents were from New England, is not 
counted, although if his parents had been born in either Michigan 
or New England, he would have been included. The estimated 
number of such cases in 1850 (persons born in New York, New Jersey, 
Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa, and Wis- 
consin) is 297,000. It may be assumed that they numbered at least 
500,000 in 1910. 

Another group not represented in the accompanying tables com- 
prises persons born in New England of New England ancestry, but 
whose immediate parents were born elsewhere. Still another omission 
is the very large group of persons of mixed New England and foreign 
descent, who probably numbered at least a million in 1910. Counting 
one-half of them, there are 500,000 more to add to the total given in 
the table. If these estimates are correct, it may be said that the 
25,000 settlers of 1640 were in 1910 represented by 5,000,000 "statis- 
tical persons." It is absolutely impossible to state closely how many 
actual persons are numbered among their descendants; but it is almost 
certain that, besides the 500,000 half -foreigners just referred to, 
there were at least 4,000,000 partly of New England and partly of 
other American stock, who count for only about 1,000,000 in the 
tables. Hence it may perhaps be asserted that at least 8,500,000 



1922] Ancestry of Grace (Chelwood) Bulkeley 307 

Americans in 1910 could claim at least one ancestor who lived in 
New England before the Revolution. 

In general the available statistics prove that the growth in num- 
bers of the descendants of the early settlers of New England was 
amazingly fast until the War of 1812; that thereafter it continued 
at a rapid rate until 1840 in New England and until about 1880 in 
the rest of the country, except as interrupted by the Civil War; 
and that since 1880 the number of pure-blooded New Englanders 
has declined considerably, although the number of persons partly 
of New England blood has continued to increase and it is possible 
that the number of equivalent "statistical persons" has not declined. 
An adequate discussion of the causes and probable consequences of 
this cessation of growth would fill a good-sized book. If the previous 
rapid rate of growth has not continued, that is not very regrettable ; 
if, however, an actual decline has set in, as may be the case, this 
foreshadows changes in the American nation which the descendants 
of the Puritans cannot contemplate without anxiety. 



ANCESTRY OF GRACE (CHETWOOD) BULKELEY, 
SECOND WIFE OF REV. PETER BULKELEY 

By Donald Lines Jacobus, M.A., of Mount Carmel, Conn. 

Rev. Peter Bulkeley, the founder of Concord, Mass., was 
born at Odell (or Wodhull, as the parish is called in earlier times), 
Bedfordshire, England, 31 Jan. 1582/3.* His father, Edward 
Bulkeley, D.D., Rector of Odell, was buried there 5 Jan. 1620/1. 
Olive Bulkeley, presumably his mother (the name Olive occurs 
among his descendants), was buried there 10 March 1614/15. t 

After completing his education at Saint John's College, Cambridge, 
he returned to Odell, and eventually succeeded his father as rector 
of that parish. He married first, at Goldington, Bedfordshire, 12 Apr. 
1613,f Jane Allen, "the daughter, " says Mather, "of Mr. Thomas 
Allen, of Goldington: a most vertuous gentlewoman, whose nephew 
was the Lord Mayor of London, Sir Thomas Allen. " By her he had 
seven sons and two daughters (of whom two sons and a daughter 
died in childhood),! and not nine sons and two daughters, as Mather 
states. "After her death," to quote Mather again (she was buried 
at Odell 8 Dec. 1626f), "he lived eight years a widdower, and then 
married a vertuous daughter of Sir Richard Chitwood; by whom he 
had three sons, and one daughter." His second marriage, with. 
Grace Chetwood, took place, apparently, in the latter half of 1634. 

*A11 published accounts of the life of Rev. Peter Bulkeley, including an article entitled Some 
Account of the Life and Times of the Rev. Peter Bulkeley (Register, vol. 31, pp. 153-159), are 
based on Cotton Mather's Magnalia Christi Americana (London, 1702), section 3, chapter x. His 
ancestry is given in the Bulkeley pedigree in Register, vol. 23, p. 303. Other material relating to 
him may be found in Publications of the Harleian Society, vol. 19, p. 164, the Non-Conformists' 
Memorial, edition of 1778, vol. 1, p. 505, and Harvey's History of Willey Hundred, p. 365.

308 Ancestry of Grace (Chetwood) Bulkeley [Oct. 

His eldest son Edward having preceded him to New England, 
plans were made for getting the rest of the family out of England, 
and Rev. Peter Bulkeley sailed, 9 May 1635, on the Susan & Ellen, 
his age being given as 50 years. His wife Grace, aged 33, had sailed 
the day before on the Elizabeth & Ann* The children, under assumed 
names, were apparently divided between the father and stepmother. 

The later history of Rev. Peter Bulkeley, until his death on 9 Mar. 
1658/9, and the record of his descendants may be found in various 
publications. 

It is odd that the clues furnished by Cotton Mather's statement 
(over two hundred years ago) about the parentage of Grace 
(Chetwood) Bulkeley and by the verification of this parentage in 
the wills of Jane Chettwood and Elizabeth Nedham, which were 
published in the Register and reprinted in Waters's " Genealogical 
Gleanings in England" (vide infra), have not hitherto been followed 
up. In this article, therefore, an attempt is made to collate and 
present to the readers of the Register material derived from various 
printed sources (chiefly English) that supply information on the 
family connections and on a few of the ancestral lines of Rev. Peter 
Bulkeley's second wife. 

Richard Chetwood, the paternal grandfather of Grace Chetwood, 
was the third son of Roger Chetwood of Reyse, co. Chester.f This 
Richard was of the privy chamber to King Edward VI and a captain 
of cavalry at the siege of Harrington, t He married Agnes, daughter 
and sole heiress of Anthony, Baron of Wodhull, co. Bedford, by his 
wife Anne, daughter of Sir John Smith, a baron of the exchequer. 

The only son of this marriage was Sir Richard Chetwood, a minor 
in 1575/6, who became a member of the Inner Temple and about 
the year 1613 presented a petition to King James I claiming the 
ancient barony in fee of Wahull [i.e., Wodhull or Odell], as being 
"heir lineal and sole of his several ancestors who had been summoned 
to attend, and had attended, the king as barons. "§ This claim was 
renewed by a descendant in 1739, again in 1831, and lastly in 1890, 
decision being finally rendered against the son of the last claimant, 
although the correctness of the descent was recognized. Sir Richard 
married first Jane, daughter and coheiress of Sir William Drewerie, 
by whom he had five children, namely, Richard (his heir), William 
(who died young), and three daughters; and he married secondly 
Dorothy, daughter of Robert Needham of Shenton, Shropshire, by 
whom he had four sons and seven daughters. The sons, in order 
of birth, were Robert, Thomas, John, and Tobias. The daughters, 
also in order of birth, were Frances, Mary, Dorothy, Jane, Grace, 
Abigail, and Beatrice. 

Of these daughters, Frances is said (in the Chetwood pedigree 
referred to above) to have married George Reinsham of Temsford, 
co. Bedford; but against this may be set the record that on 16 Dec. 
1619 "Mayster George Kimpson marryed with Mistres Frances

Chitwood" at Odell.* Grace was born about 1602 (she was aged 33 
in 1635), and married Rev. Peter Bulkeley. Beatrice was born 26 Feb. 
and baptized 5 Mar. 1608.* Jane died unmarried; in her will, dated 
6 May 1643 and proved 4 Dec. 1648, she calls herself of West Helton, 
Shropshire, and mentions (with others) her brother Mr. Robert 
Chettwood, her sister Mrs. Backley in New England, her sister Clare 
[the surname of one of the married sisters, probably Dorothy or 
Beatrice], her sister Mary Chettwood, her sister Abigail Chettwood, 
and her niece Elizabeth Bray [her half sister Anne Chetwood was 
wife of Sir Giles Bray of Barington].| 

Robert Needham, of Shenton, Shropshire, the maternal grandfather 
of Grace Chetwood, was son of Thomas Needham (who died in the 
lifetime of his father) by his wife Anne, daughter of Sir John Talbot 
of Grafton, and was grandson and heir of Sir Robert Needham, who 
was sheriff in 1529. Robert Needham was sheriff of the county in 
1565, and married Frances, daughter of Sir Edward Aston of Tixall. 
The Visitation of Shropshire, J taken in 1623, when Robert Needham's 
son Sir Robert was still living, contains a Needham pedigree, which 
gives the foregoing particulars and assigns the following children 
to Robert and Frances (Aston) Needham: 

i. Sir Robert, of Shenton, sheriff in 1807. [He was created Viscount 
Kilmorey in Ireland in 1625, and died in 1627. He was twice married, 
and was ancestor of the Earls of Kilmorey.] 

ii. Thomas, second son, m. Mary Bagenhall, widow of Sir Robert Salisbury. 

iii. Jane, m. (1) James Collyer of Stonne. [She m. (2) Radcliffe.] 

iv. Anne, m. Robert Powell of Parke. 

v. Margery, m. (1) Thomas Onslow; m. (2) Sir Robert Vernon. 

vi. Maud, m. John Aston of Aston. 

vii. Elizabeth, died s. p. 

That Dorothy Needham, second wife of Sir Richard Chetwood, 
although omitted from the Needham pedigree, was also a child of 
Robert and Frances (Aston) Needham is shown not only by the 
Chetwood pedigrees cited above but also by the will of Dorothy's 
sister Elizabeth Needham, of Hodnet, Shropshire, dated 3 Sept. 1616.§ 
This will mentions (besides many others) the brother of the testatrix, 
Sir Robert Nedham of Shavington, her brother-in-law Sir Robert 
Vernon of Hodnet and "my sister his wife," her brother-in-law 
Sir Richard Chitwood and "my sister Chitwoode," her nephews 
Robert and Thomas Chitwood, John, Tobie, Grace, Abigail, Dorothy, 
and Beatrice Chitwoode, her sister Jane Radcliffe, her nephew 
Francis Collier, her sister Powell, and her sister Mawde Aston. 

It has been shown in the preceding paragraphs that Grace 
(Chetwood) Bulkeley was great-granddaughter of Thomas Needham 
of Shenton, Shropshire, by his wife Anne, daughter of Sir John 
Talbot of Grafton. Anne's parentage is thus stated in the Needham 
pedigree,J which was drawn in the lifetime of her grandson, Sir 
Robert Needham, afterwards Viscount Kilmorey, who ought to 
have known who his grandmother was.

310 Ancestry of Grace (Chetwood) Bulkeley [Oct. 

The Talbots of Grafton, Worcs., were a younger branch of the 
Talbots, Earls of Shrewsbury; and upon the failure of the elder 
branches the Grafton branch succeeded to the title in the person 
of George Talbot of Grafton (born in 1567), who became the ninth 
Earl. All the works on the peerage state that Anne Talbot, sister 
of the ninth Earl of Shrewsbury, was the wife of Thomas Needham 
of Shenton. Now, since Anne Talbot was grandmother of Dorothy 
Needham, who must have been born in the neighborhood of 1570, 
it is apparent that Anne herself was born probably about 1510-1520; 
in other words, she could not have been sister of the ninth Earl 
of Shrewsbury, but belongs about two generations farther back 
in the Talbot pedigree. 

It is true that the ninth Earl had a sister Anne, but the Visitation 
of Worcestershire in 1569* (amplified by later manuscripts) fails 
to assign a husband to her. The great-grandfather of the ninth Earl 
was Sir John Talbot of Albrighton, who late in life inherited Grafton 
and called himself "of Grafton" in his will, which was proved 11 Oct. 
1549. His monument in Bromsgrove (where Grafton is situated) 
reads: "Hie jacent corpora Johannis Talbot, Militia, et dominae 
Margaretse primse uxoris; atque dominae Elizabethan uxoris secundae, 
filiae Wrochelei Arm., qui quidem Johannes obiit decimo die Sept. 
A.D. 1550.| The Lady Margaret bore to him three sons and five 
daughters; and the Lady Elizabeth bore to him four sons and four 
daughters. " t 

It is curious that the works on the peerage omit the daughters of 
this Sir John by his first wife, Margaret Troutbeck, although it is 
clear from the foregoing that he had five. Harleian MS. 1352, fo. 29b, 
with which the Visitation of Worcestershire is amplified, supplies 
the names of three of these five daughters, viz., Ann, Audrey, and 
Constance, and states that Audrey § was "vx. Tho. Needham." 

It is to be inferred, therefore, that the histories of the peerage 
are in error in identifying the wife of Thomas Needham with Anne 
Talbot, sister of the ninth Earl of Shrewsbury, since that lady was 
born much too late to be the wife of the Thomas Needham who 
appears in the Needham pedigree, and, moreover, no later Thomas 
Needham is available in that pedigree for the husband of this Anne. 
The conclusion seems warranted, on the evidence of Harleian MS. 
1352, fo. 29b, strengthened by the chronological necessities of the 
case, that the wife of Thomas Needham was in reality a great-aunt 
of the Anne with whom she has been erroneously identified and a 
daughter of Sir John Talbot of Grafton (who died in 1549) by his 
first wife, Margaret Troutbeck. In passing, it may be observed 
that the wife of Thomas Needham had a son John and a daughter 
Margaret, who may well have been named for her parents, though 
the names were too common to have much significance in themselves. 

* Publications of the Harleian Society, vol. 27, pp. 131-136. 

fHis inquisition post mortem states that he died 10 Sept. 1549, and the later date may be an error 
of Collins's Peerage. 

JColli'ns's Peerage (edition of 1812), vol. 3, p. 34. 

§The discrepancy with regard to the Christian name of Thomas Needham's wife is not serious, 
for her grandmother Audrey Cotton, wife of Sir Gilbert Talbot, is called Anne in one manuscript 
and Audrey in another manuscript, quoted in this same Visitation. 



1922] Notes 311 

It is not disputed, so far as the writer is aware, that the wife of 
Thomas Needham was a Talbot of Grafton, and therefore a 
descendant of the Earls of Shrewsbury. The only question is : Which 
Sir John Talbot was her father? Because of the interest which the 
numerous Bulkeley descendants may take in it, and for the purpose 
of evoking constructive criticism, the following tentative pedigree 
is appended, the generations being numbered in sequence: 

I* John Talbot, born in 1390; killed 20 July 1453; created Earl of 
Shrewsbury in 1442; married 12 Mar. 1406 Maud Nevill, Baroness 
Furnivall. 

II. John Talbot, born in 1413; killed 10 July 1460; second Earl of 
Shrewsbury and Lord Chancellor of Ireland; married Elizabeth Butler, 
who died 8 Sept. 1473, daughter of James, fourth Earl of Ormonde.f 

III. Sir Gilbert Talbot, a younger son, born perhaps about 1450; 
died 19 Sept. 1518; received for his seat Grafton, co. Worcester, and 
was Lord Deputy of Calais; married, as his second wife, Audrey Cotton 
of Landwade, co. Cambridge. 

IV. Sir John Talbot, a younger son, born perhaps about 1485; died 
10 Sept. 1549; was at first of Albrighton, Shropshire, but later inherited 
Grafton, his father's seat; married, as his first wife, Margaret, daughter 
of Adam Troutbeck. His great-grandson, George Talbot, eventually 
succeeded as ninth Earl of Shrewsbury. 

V. Anne Talbot, born perhaps about 1515; married Thomas Needham 
of Shenton, Shropshire. t 

VI. Robert Needham, born perhaps about 1535; Sheriff in 1565; 
married Frances Aston. 

VII. Dorothy Needham, born perhaps about 1570; married Sir 
Richard Chetwood. 

VIII. Grace Chetwood, born about 1602; niece of the first Viscount 
Kilmorey and second cousin, once removed, of the ninth Earl of Shrews- 
bury; married in 1634 Rev. Peter Bulkeley. 



NOTES 

It having come to the attention of this Society that certain geneal- 
ogists and publishers have used the name of the Society in con- 
nection with their own enterprises, the Society again desires to 
state that it has NO genealogical representatives in this country 

*The earlier generations of this family may be found in the works on the British peerage. The 
Grafton branch of the Talbots is incompletely given in all these books, and presented with some 
errors in many of them, the earlier editions of Lodge's Peerage being particularly defective. 

fHe was great-grandson of James Butler, first Earl of Ormonde, by his wife Eleanor, daughter of 
Humphrey de Bohun, Earl of Hereford and Essex, by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of King Edward I. 

JSince writing this article, the compiler finds that Burke's Peerage (edition of 1921), under the 
heading Kilmorey (the Needham family), states: "Thomas Needham, of Shenton, m. Anne, dau. 
of Sir John Talbot, of Grafton and Albrighton, grandson of 1st earl of Shrewsbury." This 
statement confirms the view of Anne Talbot's parentage expressed above. Yet, under the heading 
Shrewsbury (the Talbot family), the same edition of Burke's Peerage places "Anne, who m. Thomas 
Needham, of Shenton" as sister of the ninth Earl of Shrewsbury and as great-granddaughter, 
instead of daughter, of Sir John Talbot "of Albrighton, Salop, and later of Grafton. " The correct 
statement (under Kilmorey) was probably furnished by members of the Needham family; the 
incorrect statement (under Shrewsbury) was doubtless copied from Collins's Peerage and is still 
retained, despite the contradictions involved.

Trusedale-Bordman-Higginson. — The records printed below are written 
on some of the blank leaves in a copy of Gallen's "Almanack" for the year 1671. 
The little book is about V/g inches high by about 2% inches wide, and is bound 
in leather. Traces of the brass clasps that formerly held the covers together 
may be seen, and on the outside of the front cover are stamped the words, in 
two lines, "GALLEN 1671." The title-page, printed in red and black ink, 
reads as follows: "Gallen. 1671. A New Almanack for the said Year, Being the 
third from Leap-year. Containing the Lunations, Eclipses, Aspects of the 
Planets, and daily disposition of the Air. With Directions to such as use Marts 
or Fairs, also to Travellers that coast the Kingdom. Lately amplified with

Huntress-Hunt. — Administration on the estate of Samuel 3 Huntress of 
Newington, N. H., was granted 5 Aug. 1773 to Solomon 4 Huntress of Newington 
(Rockingham Probate Records). Solomon 4 Huntress married at Newmarket, 
N. H., 17 Mar. 1777, Lucy 5 Burleigh (town records; Burleigh Family, p. 21). 
In 1776 he was a soldier from Boscawen, N. H., in the Revolution (New Hamp- 
shire State Papers, vol. 14, p. 316). The "Burleigh Family" contains nothing 
further about Lucy 5 Burleigh or her children. There is no printed account of 
the Huntress Family. 

The town clerk's records of Strafford, Vt., give the birth at Canterbury, N. H., 
8 Feb. 1776, of Samuel 5 and Jacob, 5 twin sons of Solomon 4 and Lucy Huntress, 
of Anna, 5 17 Jan. 1780, Abigail, 5 22 Mar. 1783, and Solomon, 5 at Strafford, Vt., 
28 Feb. 1794. They give also the births of children of Solomon and Lucy Hunt 
at Strafford as follows: John, 18 Sept. 1785, Lucy, 5 Aug. 1786, Mary, 15 Apr. 
1788, Enoch and Burleigh, twins, 20 Jan. 1792, Joseph, 2 Dec. 1796, and Sarah, 
2 June 1798. 

From a record prepared as eaily as 1883 by Charlotte, daughter of Samuel 5 
above mentioned, it appears that all the foregoing children were brothers and 
sisters. Yet, if she knew that her father was born Samuel Huntress, she failed 
to mention it. 

The Census of 1790 contains Solomon Hunt of Strafford, Vt., with one male 
over 16 years, three under that age, and five females in his family. 

It is thus apparent that Solomon 4 Huntress began to use the name Hunt as 
early as 1785, when the birth of his fifth child was recorded, and that he was 
entered in the census under this name in 1790, although his tenth child and 
namesake was recorded as Solomon, son of Solomon and Lucy Huntress, born 
28 Feb. 1794. Their children and later descendants all used the name Hunt.

Historical Intelligence 

Heraldry. — The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society strongly recommends that all coats of arms which can be 

proved to be authentic be offered for record 
with this Society. The arrangements for the 
making and preservation of such records are 
complete, and the volume of recorded arms has 
been begun by the entry therein of a number of 
well-authenticated coats. Printed forms and 
directions for the making of applications may 
be obtained from the Committee, and all com- 
munications on this subject should be addressed 
to the Committee on Heraldry, New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, 9 Ashburton 
Place, Boston. 

Without taking any position with reference to 
the propriety of assuming arms, the Committee 
will be glad to examine arms or heraldic devices 
which any person or organization desires to as- 
sume, and give advice as to whether the same are heraldically correct or whether 
they violate a right of exclusive use heretofore acquired by others. 




Vital Records of Duxbury, Mass. — The New England Historic Genea- 
logical Society will publish in the near future some pages containing additions 
to the volume entitled " Vital Records of Duxbury, Massachusetts, to the Year 
1850," which was published by the Society in 1911, at the charge of the Eddy 
Town-Record Fund. A recent examination of the records in the office of the town 
clerk of Duxbury, made by the Assistant Editor of the Society, shows that two 
books, containing original records of births, marriages, and marriage intentions 
in the town of Duxbury, were not copied in 1906, when a verbatim copy of the 
records in the custody of the town clerk was made for the use of the Society 
in compiling the vital records of the town for publication. The report of Miss 
Alice L. Westgate, who was at that time an assistant in the editorial department 
of the Society and who verified this verbatim copy, contains a full and accurate 
description of the town books examined by her, but does not refer to the two 
books mentioned above. This report also states that the copy of the town records 
which was made by Ichabod Alden in 1851 contains some entries of which the 
original town records " cannot now be found." It is, therefore, apparent that 
the two books mentioned above were not accessible in 1906, when the copy was 
made for the use of the Society. It is the purpose of the Society to publish, in 
the form followed in the numerous volumes of vital records already printed, the 
new material found in these two books, and to distribute these supplementary 
pages among those possessing the printed volume. 



New Edition of the "Complete Peerage." — The Register wishes to 
call especial attention to the new edition of Cokayne's " Complete Peerage," 
now being edited by the Hon. Vicary Gibbs, Lord Howard de Walden, and 
H. A. Doubleday, Esq., of which the first five volumes have appeared. This is 
by far the most important work on the peerage that has hitherto been published, 
and no expense or pains have been spared to make it complete. Particular 
attention is called to the mediaeval portion of the work, which for the first time 
represents an exhaustive search in the mediaeval records of England. No state- 
ment is made that is not supported by a documentary citation, and in many 
cases abstracts of the documents themselves appear. This work is under the 
charge of G. W. Watson, Esq., one of the ablest medisevalists in England. The 
genealogical portion constitutes only one phase of this colossal work. There are 
valuable appendixes, containing exhaustive accounts of the early English peerage 
law, and treatises upon the development of early British institutions which form 
a most valuable contribution to the constitutional history of the English-speaking 
people. The work is invaluable to all students of English law and history. 

It is sincerely hoped that this work will meet with well-deserved success in 



1922] Notes 315 

America, as no library of any importance can afford to be without it, and that 
persons interested in constitutional history will contribute generously to the 
carrying on of a work that has hitherto been supported at enormous expense by 
private persons. 

Goshen, N. H. — A new history of Goshen, Sullivan Co., N. H., is in prepara- 
tion, and will supplement the little history published in pamphlet form in 1903 
try W. R. Nelson. The genealogical part of this book is being compiled by Mrs. 
A. M. Chandler Riley of Claremont, N. H., and an appeal is made to all persons 
possessing records of any kind relating to Goshen families to copy them verbatim 
and to send the copies without delay to Mrs. Riley or to W. R. Nelson, Mill 
Village, Sullivan Co., N. H. 

Three Hundredth Anniversary of the Grant of the Province of Maine. 
— On Thursday, 10 Aug. 1922, the Piscataqua Pioneers, at their annual meeting 
and field day held at the Rockingham County Court House, in Portsmouth, N. H., 
celebrated the three hundredth anniversary of the grant of the Province of Maine 
by the Plymouth Company to Sir Ferdinando Gorges and Capt. John Mason, 
10 Aug. 1622. After Hon. F. W. Hartford, Mayor of Portsmouth, had welcomed 
the members of the society and expressed his high appreciation of the valuable 
work of their organization, Charles Thornton Libby, Esq., of Portland, Me., 
President of the Piscataqua Pioneers, delivered an historical address which is 
well worthy of preservation in the pages of the Register. After thanking the 
Mayor for his kind words of welcome, Mr. Libby said: 

"Portsmouth has always been an interesting place to visit, ever since the 
new comers at Little Harbor first found the strawberries up the river; and for us, 
whose forefathers, living on one or another of the branches of this river, had to 
come to the Bank in order to know they were living, once in so often, it is doubly 
pleasant. 

"It has been said that the patent of the Province of Maine, Aug. 10, 1622, 
granting all between the Merrimac and the Kennebec, was of minor consequence 
because nothing was done under it. Rather may we regard it as the foundation, 
both in legal operation and in actual carryings on, of all that came after. 

"By the terms of this grant, which we celebrate to-day, Sir Ferdinando Gorges 
and Captain Mason bound themselves under £100 penalty to settle one colony 
with a competent guard and at least ten families within three years. We must 
believe they did it. They two were the efficient colonizers of New England. They 
squandered both their own wealth and the wealth of others, but they achieved. 
Having agreed to settle ten families, they did it. Here was the founding of this 
State and of Maine this side of the Kennebec. 

"It is true that the Plymouth Company in 1622 deeded this land where 
we now are to Gorges and Mason, and in 1623 deeded it to Mr. David Thomson, 
and in 1629 deeded it to Captain Mason, and in 1631 deeded it to the Laconia 
Company, and in 1635 gave a nine hundred and ninety-nine years' lease of it 
to Sir John Wollaston, all covering the same land. But in dealing with these 
old patents we must bear three things constantly in mind, or we shall trip our- 
selves up. For one thing, the corporation called 'the Council established at 
Plymouth in the County of Devon for the planting and ordering of New England' 
was only another name for Sir Ferdinando Gorges and Capt. John Mason. Second, 
when Sir Ferdinando and Captain Mason gave deeds of parts of their land, they 
did it in the name of the corporation. Third, the deeds they gave were really only 
options, conditioned on making actual settlements. When the conditions were 
not performed, the lands reverted to Gorges and Mason. 

"Wollaston's deed back to Captain Mason openly explains the lease, 'which 
said indenture was made unto the said John Wollaston by and with the consent 
of the said Captain John Mason.' Instead of Captain Mason giving the lease 
himself, he gave it in the name of the Council. The grant to Mason in 1629 is 
explained by the lawyers of Mr. Mason's grandson, 'being a division of the 
lands formerly granted unto Sir Ferdinando Gorges and John Mason.' Instead 
of Sir Ferdinando and Captain Mason giving deeds to each other to divide their 
lands, they issued new grants to themselves in the name of the Council. 

"Mr. David Thomson, the first planter of New Hampshire, was not what the 



316 Notes [Oct. 

historian Hubbard said he was, 'the agent of Gorges and Mason.' Nor did he 
receive a conflicting grant of lands already granted to them. His deed, although 
in the name of the Council, was really from them. Some historians have failed to 
understand how he received a grant of six thousand acres already granted to 
them, or why he did not hold it afterwards. These two questions answer each 
other if permitted to do so. Sir Ferdinando Gorges and Capt. John Mason in 
effect deeded to Mr. David Thomson six thousand acres of the best of their lands 
on conditions which he failed to fulfill; and so the lands reverted to them. 

"As the patent to Mr. Thomson is lost, we cannot know exactly what the 
conditions they put into it were, but we may be sure that they covered the under- 
taking for which they themselves were under bond, to settle in this wilderness a 
sufficient guard and ten families. We have from Mr. Samuel Maverick, who 
came to Massachusetts in 1624, some years before the Boston colony started the 
Year One of New England, as they reckoned it, and who soon married 
Mr. Thomson's young widow, a graphic account of what was done: 

'Strawberry Bank, the Great House and Isle of Shoals. Within 2 myles of 
the mouth is Strawberry Bank where are many families, and a minister and 
a meeting house, and to the meeting houses of Dover and Exeter most of 
the people resort. This Strawberry Bank is part of 6,000 acres granted by 
patent about the year 1620 or 1621 to Mr. David Thompson, who with the 
assistance of Mr. Nicholas Sherwill, Mr. Leonard Pomery and Mr. Abraham 
Colmer of Plymouth, merchants, went over with a considerable company 
of servants, and built a strong and large house, enclosed it with a large and 
high Palizado and mounted gunns, and being stored extraordinarily with 
shot and ammunition, was a terror to the Indians, who at that time were 
insulting over the poor, weak and unfurnished planters of Plymouth. This 
house and fort he built on a point of land at the very entrance of Piscataqua 
River and having granted by patent all the islands bordering on this land 
to the middle of the river, he took possession of an island commonly called 
the Great Island, and for the bounds of this land he went up the river to a 
point called Bloody Point, and by the seaside about four miles. He also had 
power of government within his own bounds. Notwithstanding all this, 
all is at this day in the power and at the disposal of the Massachusetts.' 

"So here we see what method Sir Ferdinando and Captain Mason took to 
fulfill their bond to the Council. Mr. Thomson, a cultured and travelled gentle- 
man, whom Sir Ferdinando had employed in difficult negotiations with high 
officials, was to do it for them, and for this service to have six thousand acres 
on one side of the river. To get the necessary capital, he contracted with three 
Plymouth merchants to run the plantation five years, and then turn over to them 
three-fourths of the improved land and three-fourths of the profits. After three 
years' effort, he saw fit to remove to Massachusetts Bay, where he could have all 
his improved lands and all of his profits. Whether he settled all the ten families 
within three years from Aug. 10, 1622, or whether Gorges and Mason had to come 
forward to finish the task, we do not know. 

"Let us remember that we know very little about this dark period when the 
Province of Maine covered Maine and New Hampshire both. Except 
Mr. Thomson and the Hiltons and, perhaps, Mr. Ambrose Gibbins, we have 
not one name to associate with this period. The arrival of the Warwick, when 
our written history begins, was not until the summer of 1630. 

"They have in Boston, not in its legal custody, a sheet of paper written on 
both sides, a separate document on either side, and both certified by Elisha Cooke, 
clerk of courts. On one side is a copy of the inventory of the Laconia Company's 
goods, July 1635, attested by Mr. Chamberlain, secretary of this Province in 
1683, when the case of Mason v. Waldron was tried, and this is of unquestionable 
genuineness. 

"On the other side is the list of people, 'sent by John Mason, Esquire,' winding 
up with 'Eight Danes, Twenty-Two Women.'* If this list was offered in court 
in 1683, it was rejected as spurious. Both from external and internal evidence 
it seems a fraudulent production. Probably it was made up to use in the suit 
against Humphrey Spencer in 1704, as there is a check mark in the margin 

*Thia list was printed in the Register, vol. 2, p. 39; but Mr. Libby states that he has 
examined the original manuscript of the list. — Editor. 






1922] Notes 317 

opposite Thomas Spencer's name, and Elisha Cooke was not appointed clerk 
of courts until 1702. The list omits names of some who we know were sent over 
by Captain Mason, as Thomas Crockett, inserts names of young men who were 
children or unborn at the time of Captain Mason's death, as the two younger 
Chadbournes, Thomas Fernald, and Jeremy Walford, and includes the names 
of men who we know were not sent over by him, as William Seavey, who came 
on a fishing trip to the Isles of Shoals, John Symonds, sent over by Trelawny to 
Richmond's Island, Francis Norton and Sampson Lane, who came after the 
Captain's death, and others. The name printed as Henry Baldwin is not that 
name in the Boston list; evidently Clerk Cooke could not read it, but from his 
imitation of the writing I judge it was Odiorne. No Henry Odiorne is known 
to have been here, which is true of other names in the list, which may have been 
invented at the same time as the Wheelwright deed, in the desperate resolve 
to protect the community from the loss of their homes, with various names inserted 
that might help different ones to claim their lands as descendants of Captain 
Mason's servants. Thomas Crockett's descendants were living on Kittery side; 
but, as they claimed no lands on Portsmouth side, there was thus no occasion to 
include his name. 

"So our certain knowledge after the arrival of the Warwick is none too full, 
yet luminous when compared with the unwritten period preceding, although 
the Isles of Shoals and the Piscataqua were the principal ports in New England 
in that period. If the settlement had been abandoned, Governor Bradford would 
surely have recorded the fact. On the contrary, in 1628 Piscataqua contributed 
as much as Plymouth to the expense of banishing Morton, who was selling fire- 
arms to the Indians. There must have been many people here, besides hundreds 
of transients here and at the Shoals; but we ask in vain who they were. 

"If Mr. Gibbins came over early, he went back, as he came on the Warwick. 
Hubbard says the Hiltons were here, that they came with Thomson. Hubbard, 
who certainly was mistaken in part, seems to have gotten his information from 
young William Hilton, a boy not six years old when Mr. Thomson came over. 
In young Hilton's petition to the General Court in the year 1660, to confirm 
lands given his father and himself by the Indians, he said: 

'Whereas your petitioner's father, William Hilton, came over into New 
England about the year Anno Dom. 1621 and your petitioner came about 
one year and half after, and in a little time following settled ourselves upon 
the River of Pischatag with Mr. Edward Hilton, who were the first English 
planters there.' 

"This reads as though Mr. Hubbard accepted Hilton's story, and recorded 
it as history, merely inserting David Thomson's name with the Hiltons. Mr. 
Hubbard, who was the minister at Ipswich, was a few years younger than William 
Hilton, Jr., who was baptized at Witton church, in Northwich, Cheshire, June 22, 
1617. Hilton's two wives belonged to prominent families of Newbury and 
Charlestown, and Mr. Hubbard must have been well acquainted with both 
families. William Hilton, Jr., was a shipmaster, and had had a book of soundings 
or charts printed before Mr. Hubbard got up the map of New England for his 
history of King Philip's War. About Plymouth, as well as the Piscataqua, 
Mr. Hubbard seems to have gotten information from Hilton. He says, what 
no one else does, that the first complaint against Mr. Lyford, who was brought 
over by Mr. Winslow in 1624 to be minister at Plymouth, was over baptizing a 
child of Mr. Hilton's, although not a member of their church. Hubbard's 'History' 
shows familiar knowledge of the Hiltons, as accurate as a little boy might 
remember and tell things to a friend. 

"Certainly William Hilton did not* come over with Thomson. He came to 
Plymouth in 1621, and was there with his family in 1624. It seems doubtful 
whether Edward Hilton did, although from April 9, 1621, when he came out 
of his apprenticeship in the Fishmongers' Company of London, until 1628, 
when he contributed to keep firearms away from the Indians, we have as yet no 
knowledge of his movements. But there is contemporary evidence that some 
Bristol merchants joined with him to settle his colony, and a young fellow just 
out of his apprenticeship must be allowed sufficient time in which to perfect such 
important connections, even if aided by Sir Ferdinando Gorges. If Edward 
Hilton was one of Mr. Thomson's first company, it seems that he must have 
gone back. 



318 Notes [Oct. 

"At any rate, if here early in 1624, he was with Thomson at Little Harbor, and 
had not yet made his settlement up the river. Capt. Christopher Levett in 1628 
printed a book on his voyage of 1623-4. He stopped a month with Mr. Thomson 
at Little Harbor. While there he ' discovered ' the Piscataqua River, and an Indian 
who came down the river told him that up the river was much good land. In 
this season of tercentenary good cheer we all wish to work our believers overtime 
if necessary to keep everybody happy; but we must be equipped with believers 
as big as bushel baskets to believe that that Indian told Captain Levett that there 
were good lands up the river without telling him also that there were Englishmen 
living on them, if there had been such. 

"So in 1922 we can all join in celebrating the three hundredth anniversary of 
the granting of the charter under which New Hampshire and Maine were colonized; 
and next year we can all join in celebrating the founding of New Hampshire; and 
at later periods, as we may learn the facts, different localities can celebrate, in a 
series of tercentenaries, all in our turn, and begrudging none. " 



Andruss-Jones. — George Henry Andruss, of 261 Montgomery Street, 
San Francisco, Calif., President of the California Genealogical Society, has been 
for several years engaged in rewriting, verifying, and continuing the records held 
by him of the Jones family, descendants of William Jones, Deputy Governor of 
the New Haven Colony. Mr. Andruss possesses a great amount of data con- 
cerning the Andruss family of New Jersey, to which he belongs, and also concern- 
ing the Jones family, to which his mother, Julia Ann (Jones) Andruss, belonged. 
In order to add to his records, he will gladly exchange both Jones and Andruss 
information with responsible parties, provided stamps are enclosed for reply. 
A notice somewhat similar to this notice was printed in the Register of January 
1904 (vol. 58, p. 96). 

Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised 
to furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service under the U. S. Government, the holding of other offices, gradu- 
ation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and dates 
of birth, marriage, residence, and death. All names should be given in full, if 
possible. No initials should be used when the full name is known.
